the nature of mind
BY VEN. robina courtin

Thursday, September 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Mind, or consciousness, is at the very heart of Buddhist practice. And knowing and transforming it – the whole spectrum of our thoughts, feelings, and emotions – is work we all need to do.

We all want to be fulfilled, content, joyful. But why is it that no matter how hard we try, we are so often thwarted in our efforts? According to Buddhism it is because we don’t give enough power to our own mind and our own experiences; we don’t deeply understand the inner causes of our experiences.

Although it appears true that the world is the source of our happiness and pain, this is an illusion. We are, in fact, the creators of our own reality, and we need to taste our capacity to experience this.

We will explore in depth the workings of the human mind, how to become vividly aware of our emotions and feelings, and how to gradually develop the astonishing potential within each one of us, our buddha nature, for our own sake and the sake of others.

Lama Ngawang Norbu

Lama Ngawang Norbu es el director, fundador y maestro residente de Casa Virupa. Cuando finalizó sus estudios empezó a formarse exclusivamente en Dharma, tanto en filosofía, meditación y rituales de la escuela Sakya. Con solo 24 años fundó Casa Virupa con la bendición de S.S. Gongma Trichen Rinpoche. En febrero del 2020 S.S. Gongma Trichen Rinpoche le nombró lama (maestro) de la escuela Sakya. Su claridad y habilidad comunicativa, su capacidad para capturar la esencia de las enseñanzas y trasladarlas a un público actual, así como su sensibilidad para empatizar, le caracterizan.
