24-26 april 2015: Namkha Rinpoche: Phowa van Throma Nagmo

NamkhaRinpoche2Opening the Door of Primordial Wisdom

We zijn ontzettend blij aan te kunnen kondigen dat tijdens het weekend van 24 t/m 26 april 2015 geeft Namkha Rinpoche een zeldzame teaching over de Phowa beoefening van Throma Nagmo (Düdjom Tersar traditie): “Opening the Door of Primordial Wisdom”.

Ayang Rinpoche zegt het volgende over Phowa:

We have four major kinds of suffering in our lifetime: birth, sickness, old age and death. For those who are already grown up, birth suffering is over. For sickness suffering there are many helpers (our family and relatives, friends and community) and all different kinds of treatment. For old age suffering, no matter what different kinds of treatment we do to our body, we are going to get older each second, each hour, and each day. Ultimately, we cannot make ourselves younger.

Death is our biggest suffering, and our biggest mistake is not to think about it. Our family members, relatives and friends cannot join us at our death moment. We are alone with the results of the positive, virtuous, good deeds we did in our life. These results are all that is with us, and is our self-protection.

Phowa practice is the best self-protection. It is the best way to be free from death suffering. It is the easiest way to reach Buddha’s Pure Land, and the quickest way to reach enlightenment from a Pure Land.

De teaching is zeer toegankelijk en zowel geschikt voor beginnende als meer gevorderde beoefenaars. Werkelijk een teaching om niet te missen.
