Love, Compassion, Rejoicing, Equanimity.

Without Limit.


27th – 30th August 2015 | Bonn, Germany.


 

We are delighted to inform you that His Holiness Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje will be teaching in Bonn, Germany at the end of this month.

The visit, entitled ‘Love, Compassion, Rejoicing, Equanimity. Without Limit’, is organised by Kamalashila Institute for Buddhist Studies & Meditation and the Karma Kagyü Gemeinschaft Deutschland e. V., and is open to all friends, students and interested guests.

The Main Message of Karmapa’s journey to Europe in 2015 is how to integrate spirituality in everyday life. Since we are living in a world that is becoming smaller while our lives become more and more interconnected, we have to find ways to take more responsibility for our surroundings and create better conditions in general for a peaceful and harmonious co-existence. This is a universal task which is based on the cultivation of a clear vision and a good heart.

Love, Compassion, Rejoicing and Equanimity. Without Limit. The motto of the journey manifests four positive mental attitudes, known as “The Four Immeasurables” within the Buddhist context. They are an essential Buddhist teaching and provide a common basis within all Buddhist traditions. From the Buddhist point of view, all living beings without exception are mutually dependent. Therefore, even in our own interest it makes sense to wish for the happiness and freedom from suffering of everybody living in this world – no matter how close or distant they seem to us from our own personal perspective.
