With Ven. Tenzin Gendun
COURSE DURATION: Sunday, July 14, 2019, 10.00 – 17.00
CATEGORY: Buddhist Study
Each FPMT Discovering Buddhism course ends with an intensive practice day, which is designed to review the material one more time and to practice the meditations in a retreat setting. It can also be a great way to get a summary of the course, if you did not have the chance to attend regularly. Everyone is welcome.
We will use this and the following Sunday for two Intensive Practice Days, summarizing the course “Samsara and Nirvana” (today) and “How to Develop Bodhicitta” (next Sunday, 21. July).
“By renouncing samsara, we renounce our habitual grasping, unhappy minds. And by renouncing samsara, we embrace our potential for enlightenment. There is no samsaric pleasure that is new, so let go of the clinging that creates samsara.” ~ Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Born in Sri Lanka and growing up in England, Ven. Gendun studied in art school and did a degree in illustration before meeting Tibetan Buddhism in 1991 through the kindness of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. After his ordination in 1992 Ven. Gendun worked in FPMT centres in New Zealand. He moved to Nalanda Monastery in France in 2000 to deepen his studies. He teaches and guides retreats at the Nalanda Monastery and in other FPMT centers in Europe.
