Since the I that exists is merely imputed, there is nothing to cherish, nothing to cling to. Good-bye to depression, worries and fears.

Discovering Buddhism: Death and Rebirth

with Venerable Thubten Dondrub

LEVEL Beginner/Intermediate
AVAILABLE ONLINE Yes
START DATE Tuesday, 21st June 2022 (Please enrol by 16th June)
TIME Tuesday nights, 7:15 – 9:15pm
DURATION 5 Weeks
RETREAT DAY Sunday, 24th July 2022

It is only by reflecting on change and impermanence that we can use our present life to its fullest potential. Explore the process of death and rebirth, and its impact on how we live our lives. Be guided in skilful reflection on the meaning of death and what to expect at death-time. In this way, fulfil your purpose in life, resolve conflicts, and develop the skills to help both yourself and others at the time of death. Eventually, through Buddhist practice, one can overcome fear and death altogether.

The Twelve Links of Dependent Origination

with Venerable Thubten Dondrub

LEVEL Intermediate/Advanced
START DATE
 Thursday, 14th July 2022
TIME Thursday nights, 7:15 – 9:15pm
DURATION 4 Weeks
AVAILABLE ONLINE Yes

The Buddha taught: because this exists, that arises. Because this is born, that is born. The Twelve Links explains how through the condition of ignorance, compounding factors arise, from these; consciousness, name and form, the six sense spheres, contact, feeling, craving, grasping, existence, birth, aging and death. Understanding dependent origination is fundamental to understanding how we perpetuate Samsara.
