the virupa agora presents:
generosity as a door and path

Sessions: 09/04, 09/25, 10/23, 11/27, 12/18

Tal y como hacían los antiguos sabios griegos, la discusión filosófica en el ágora, en la plaza, servía para contrastar ideas y prejuicios y, mediante el diálogo y la guía de un maestro, superar la propia visión para acceder a una verdad que trascendiera a los sujetos en diálogo. Si bien esta práctica ha quedado abandonada en Occidente, conectados con la riqueza de nuestras raíces mediterráneas, creemos que resulta absolutamente fértil y útil para profundizar en el Dharma: de ahí nace el ágora de VirupaUn curso que combinará la exposición a las enseñanzas budistas, que impartirá Lama Norbu, con espacios de debate y contemplación con los participantes del curso.

El tema de este trimestre: la paciencia

Arne Schelling, instructor of meditation and Buddhist philosophy in Europe appointed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, will give a monograph on the Madhyamaka, the middle way, inaugurated by the Buddhist teacher Nagarjuna.


These are perfect teachings for those who are interested in delving into Buddhist philosophy, entering the Madhyamaka, one of the most exciting and enriching philosophical theories that exist, as it deals with the empty nature of phenomena.


The activity can be followed in person (limited places) and live online, with access to the recording for 1 month after the teachings.

In the face-to-face format, participants can spend the night at home or in town, in a hotel or hostel. If they stay outside, they can have lunch and dinner in Casa Virupa, but breakfast is outside the center.

Arne Schelling was born in Germany, where he practices western and Chinese medicine. In 1989 he began to study and practice intensively under the guidance of various Buddhist masters of all Tibetan traditions, especially guided by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dzongsar Khyntse Rinpoche and Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche. Arne began to translate for Buddhist teachers from Tibetan and Zen tradicions in 1999. He also worked as a translator and editor for many books, including "Whats Makes You (Not) a Buddhist), "Not for Happiness", "Madhyamakavatara Commentary", etc. He has been translating sutras for the 84.000 project since 2011. In 20008, Dzonsar Khyentse Rinpoche appointed him as an instructor.
