Summer Course 2017: Day 3

Lectures, lectures, lectures… but this time without a storm, just massive heat! :)

Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche gave his first in a series of lectures this morning. Rinpoche taught about Shine (Skt. Shamatha) meditation and emphasized on the 5 major points for proper body position. In more than 40 degrees inside the tent, he gave teachings for nearly 3.5 hours. Afterwards, Rinpoche sat down for a portrait shooting session with our photographers team – below you can see some of the magnificent results.

During the lunch break, the Buddhist centers of Granada (Spain), Moscow (Russia) and the retreat place in Israel presented their building and expansion projects in the dining tent. Want to know more about the projects? Just have a look at the related websites:

Lama Ole answered even more questions in the afternoon and talked about the meditation practice of Phowa (Conscious Dying) among other topics. In a Phowa meditation course with Lama Ole Nydahl, one learns how to transfer one’s consciousness into a pure state at the time of one’s death. It is therefore very precious. Very important is to prepare for a Phowa course by doing the meditation practice of the Buddha of Limitless Light (Skt. Amitabha, Tib. Öpame). Explanations for this practice are available in any Diamond Way center. Please ask!
