Mind training

“Taking Refuge in Bodhicitta, your loving-kindness is so crucial. It's like a priceless gem, much more precious than if all space was filled with wish-granting gems. It is incomparable to the value of your loving-kindness. Just a minute of compassion for a sentient being, be it an insect or a person, is incredibly precious, as it brings you closer to Bodhichitta and Awakening.

Even if you cannot perform many practices, but you have in mind to benefit others, then your whole life, every day, month and year, is transformed and becomes like gold, like a diamond. This is extremely significant and beneficial for all living things. You don't spend your life just to provide for your own happiness. If you do not take Refuge in Bodhichitta, your loving-kindness, even as you spend many years in retreat, even though you are reciting billions of mantras, all of this makes little or no sense and the benefit to you and them. others is minimal.

Teaching extract on the practice of Tara Blanche, 2021, transmitted by our Venerable Lama Sangyay Tendzin

In order to be able to lead all beings towards the attainment of enlightenment, for the good of all, it is necessary to deepen the knowledge of our own mind and the opening of our heart. In order to guide us on this path, each year our Venerable Sangyay Tendzin honors us with his presence at seminars organized by Sangha Switzerland. The sacred texts and teachings entrusted to us will be studied and practiced with care. Since the sanitary restrictions, the possibility of meeting the masters of our lineage is restricted. However, thanks to the internet and other technology, lessons and courses have been put in place to continue to come together to progress on this voice.

For the past few months, every Saturday morning, we have had the opportunity to follow the teachings by video-conference, on the texts of the Bodhicharyavatara. Two Saturdays a month we attend the Tibetan vocabulary course specific to texts practiced regularly in our centers, as well as the Tuesday evening course on basic Tibetan writing and vocabulary. Below you will find the list of the last seminars given in Switzerland and those followed in recent months by video conference.

Teaching on the practice of Sangyay Menla, the Medicine Buddha

The Medicine Buddha is an enlightened being who possesses infinite and unbiased compassion for all living beings. It protects living beings from physical and mental illnesses as well as other dangers and obstacles. It also helps sentient beings eliminate the three poisons - attachment, hatred and ignorance - which are the root of all disease and danger. He is the Medicine Buddha. The practice of Sangye Menla, the Medicine Buddha is a very powerful method to heal oneself and others and overcome the inner disease of attachment, hatred and ignorance. If we practice Medicine Buddha with pure faith, we will receive the blessings of his accomplishments.
