27-28 November: Geshe Sherab in Zurich
We are very happy to announce that Geshe Sherab will teach at the Lhagsam Tibetan Meditation Study Group in Zurich for the third time at the end of November. Geshe-la will give an introduction to Lojong, also known as “mind training” or “thought transformation” based on the Eight Verses of Thought Transformation by Langri Tangpa.
Lojong teachings are quintessential Mahayana teachings in that their aim is to eliminate both the self-cherishing attitude and self-grasping. The mind training tradition is one that is embraced by all Tibetan lineages.
Geshe Sherab was the first teacher to ever visit our Lhagsam Tibetan Meditation Study Group 2 years ago. How wonderful that he is coming back to give us our very first teaching based on a traditional Buddhist text. I cannot imagine a better teacher to introduce us the mind training techniques. (Nina)
Combining the rigor of 25 years of study for the Geshe degree (the equivalent of a PhD in Tibetan Buddhism) and more than 15 years of teaching in the West, Geshe Sherab will adapt these traditional teachings to our modern life and explain in a practical way, how we can use mind transformation to gain more balance and resilience in daily life.
The teaching will be divided into two evenings:
