Dear European Sangha, 

We are very pleased to announce that from January 19 to 27th, 2019,  Khenpo Choying Dorjee will visit Berlin to teach on various Mahayana topics - Bodhicharyavatara 9th Chapter and Ambrosia for the Mind. 

Dates: January 19 – 27th

Cost: entire program €120 – 180, per day €25-30, per talk €15 – 20 

Khenpo will teach on: 

  • Ambrosia for the Mind by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo

The great non-secterian master Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo wrote a short and very practical commentary upon the “Seven points of Mind Training,” which are  the pith instructions of the precious Kadampas. With Bodhicitta as its heart, Khenpo Chöying Dorje will explain to us how a true transformation of our mind becomes possible in all walks of life through the blessings of our compassionate teachers.  


  • The Ninth (Wisdom) Chapter of the Bodhicharyavatara

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche said that Shantideva’s Bodhicharyavatara is "a must have, must read, must contemplate and must follow book for those who wish to exercise the privilege of being heir to Shakyamuni Buddha’s unique heritage.” Out of its ten chapters, Khenpo Chöying Dorje will elucidate its most important and famous wisdom chapter to introduce us to the view of emptiness in an understandable and experiential way. By properly learning to see the truth as it is, we will be able to replace all our hopes and fears with unconditioned love and compassion for all sentient beings. 

Daily Schedule of Teachings:

10:00 – 12:30 Ambrosia for the Mind

14:00 – 17:00 The Ninth (Wisdom) Chapter

19:00 – 22:00 The Ninth (Wisdom) Chapter (on Monday only until 17:00)
