Siddhartha's Intent Europe Events
Do Tulku Rinpoche and Arne Schelling in Spain
- 18 - 22 July 2018
- All Day
We are glad to announce that Do Tulku Rinpoche will be back in Casa Virupa this July. On this occasion, we have the privilege of him leading a retreat of Buddhist preliminaries (ngondro), open to all traditions, from July 20th to 22th.
In addition, two days before Do Tulku's retreat (July 18 and 19), and to prepare for the retreat with Rinpoche, Arne Schelling, instructor of meditation and Buddhist philosophy, will teach about "the four thoughts that turn the mind to Dharma".
From 20th to 22th of July
According to the Buddha, we are treasure mines of amazing qualities. Endless source of joy and well being. We have been complete and pure from the beginningless of time, and even before the concept of time. Not having seen one's own face, we roam in this world wearing all kinds of masks. Awakenning, is all the Buddha wanted for us. In this age of superficial spirituality, it is indeed worrysome that the purity of our being could be wasted away on a materialistic aproach that entangles us further into this net of lies.
During this retreat, we will attempt to go back to our root. To the Buddha, his Dharma and the Sangha. Because only by understanding them, we will come face to face with who we are. This is called preliminary/ngondro, because it comes before buddhahood.
18th and 19th of July
In order to really understand our root - the Buddha, his Dharma and the Sangha- we need to start to tune our mind: we have to open our eyes to the truth, and recognize the net of lies in which we are living in. Arne Schelling will help us to discover these, by showing us, that our lives are full of potential and creativity, that our actions do have consequences and that permanence and superficial happiness are our favourite lies. By fully embodying these discoveries, we are ready to go back to our long forgotten roots.
