THE PRAYER OF SAMANTABHADRA

The Samantabhadra prayer is one of the most important Buddhist prayers, also called ‘The King of Prayers’. Reciting this prayer allows one to accumulate infinite merit, not only for oneself, but especially for others, and is therefore traditionally recited for the dead or for those in particularly difficult situations. It is also the main prayer recited during the 10 days of Universal Prayers for Peace (Monlam) in which monks and nuns from all Tibetan schools participate every year.

This year, from 30th July to 1st August, the second Sakya Monlam in Europe will take place in Paris, which will be guided by Their Holinesses the Sakya Trizin (41st, 42nd and 43rd) and H.E. Asanga Rinpoche, and many great Sakya masters will arrive for the occasion.

The three turnings of the Dharma wheel.
Part 1: Free yourself from samsara

To guide his disciples towards liberation and enlightenment, the Buddha gave a wide range of teachings tailored to their individual needs and abilities. These teachings were then grouped into three classes of teachings called the three turnings of the Dharma wheel, each turning revealing another essential dimension of the path. We will address each of these teachings during the summer seminars of the next three years (2022-2024),

2022 : The three turnings of the Dharma wheel.
Part 1: Free yourself from samsara

With the first turning of the Dharma wheel, the main subject of the Buddha’s teaching concern the Four Noble Truths. This teaching is the foundation of the entire system of Buddhist thought and practice of all traditions and lineages. During this seminar, this topic will be supported by a reading of the “Setting in motion of the Dharma Wheel Sutra”, and will explore important related aspects of the Abhidharma teachings.

Les trente-sept pratiques des Bodhisattvas.

Intervenant : Marie Madeleine Schmitt.

« Les 37 pratiques des Bodhisattvas » est un texte qui a été écrit au XIV ème siècle par Gyelsé Thogmé Zangpo afin de nous faire avancer vers une ouverture du cœur et de l’esprit. C’est  un enseignement très pratique et très profond. Il rassemble les instructions permettant de développer les qualités des Bodhisattvas. Ces instructions peuvent nous servir d’exemples et nous orientent vers l’aspiration authentique à réaliser le bonheur des autres. Il est important d’avoir une bonne compréhension de ce qui est enseigné, d’en saisir le sens profond et d’enrichir ainsi notre propre expérience. Cet enseignement nous aide à faire naître en nous une attitude plus juste, induisant une action correcte, et c’est ainsi que l’on pourra avancer pas à pas sur le chemin des Bodhisattvas.

TEACHINGS ON BARDO & BUDDHA AMITABHA INITIATION

Life is a continuous fluctuation of birth, death and transition. In every moment of our experience, between the birth and fading of thoughts and emotions, there are empty spaces where the primordial nature of the mind manifests. The Tibetan Book of the Dead (Bardo Tödröl) is not only about death, but also about the whole life of the individual.

In this seminar, after the teachings on the Bardo – the intermediate state between death and rebirth – the initiation of Amithaba, the Buddha of Infinite Light residing in the Pure Land Sukavati will be conferred, whose door opens at the moment of death and can be entered by those who have lived with a pure heart.

Commemoration of venerable Khenchen Shérab G. Amipa Rinpoché, par Khenpo Tashi Sangpo Lag

Thursday 14 April from 19:15 to 21:00

We practice together the Guruyoga ritual Lama Chöpa* in remembrance of our beloved ven. Khenchen Sherab Gyaltsen Amipa (1931 – 2014), the founder of our Dharma centres in Europe.

In your heart, a spacious sky of love,
clouds of compassion fully gather,
with the rain of activity falling down,
you ripen the harvest of ones to be tamed.
Khenchen Sherab Gyaltsen Amipa, at your feet I bow! 

(adapted from Milarepa’s Vajra song.)

On this day we will light many butterlamps in various monasteries in India and Tibet and also in our centers, and will offer food to the Ngöndro practitioners in Bodhgaya/India.

Guruyoga, blessings and teachings

In Guruyoga, the essential point to understand is that all the Buddhas are of one taste in the dharmakaya. The dharmakaya is the absolute Guru, and this is all the Buddhas. This is the very heart of Guruyoga practice. Without understanding this there’s no way to practice Guruyoga comfortably. Even if we do the visualizations, it won’t be completely satisfactory because we’ll be unclear as to how Buddha is the embodiment of the Guru and the Guru is the embodiment of Buddha. However, it will be extremely clear if we understand the very heart of Guruyoga, that the Guru is Buddha and Buddha is the Guru.

THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE OF JETSUN MILAREPA, PART 2

Milarepa, famous in the ten directions for attaining enlightenment in a single lifetime and for his songs of realisation, is one of Tibet’s most beloved historical figures. His biography, which shows the intensity of his life’s processes, is a great teaching in itself. The extraordinary events in his life unfolded from suffering to black magic, from regret to harsh purification, from rigorous asceticism to the bliss of realisation. Having reached the pinnacle of the path, he instructs and inspires all beings he encounters with the poetic beauty of his vajra chants, through which he teaches all aspects of the Dharma.
