The Power of Our Imagination: An Introduction to Tantra 

With Gen Kelsang Namkhyen ~ 10.00 – 13.00

We often underestimate the power of our imagination, because we think it is just fantasy. However our imagination creates our reality. Whatever we have created started first in our imagination. If we cannot imagine something it cannot come into being. If we cannot imagine ourself to be any other than we are, we cannot grow. In Tantra we use our imagination to see what we could become, an enlightened being, and use this as tool to overcome our limitations and develop good qualities. This half day course will give an introduction to using our imagination in this way.

Seeing Beyond the Illusion of Things

With Gen Kelsang Namkhyen ~ 10.00 – 15.30

On this day course we examine how real is the reality that we normally see. Buddha said that all phenomena are like illusions, like dreams, but this is not what we normally see. It is because we don’t realize this that we experience problems and suffering. Understand how things really exist is the universal solution that solves all problems. With this understanding we will come to experience permanent, inner peace and lasting happiness.

Compassion, Our Real Inner Protector

With Gen Kelsang Namkhyen ~ 10.00 – 15.30

With compassion we won’t see anyone as our enemy and we will never develop negative minds towards them. Instead we will always have positive, beneficial minds towards everyone. In this way we cannot be harmed by anyone and we will never create problems for others. On this day course we learn how to develop and increase our compassion, using the practice of Buddha Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion.
