      Calm-abiding Meditation Course | Tibetan Buddhist tradition : 12 weeks

      THIS IS A 12 WEEKS EVENT! YOU CAN CALL US IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR PREFER TO BOOK DIRECTLY WITH US BY E-TRANSFER! It is well known that the primary purpose of the Buddha's teaching is to attain happiness of enlightenment by practicing two forms of meditation : concentration meditation and analytical meditation. The first aims at achieving calm-abiding (shamatha), while the second aims to gaining special insight (vipashyana) .Our calm-abiding meditation course is meant for beginners as well as for more advanced meditators. Although our groups are mostly made up of first-time meditators, there are also those who have already practiced meditation and are seeking another technique. There are as well those who wish to take the course for the second or third time in order to improve their meditative skills. In this course are given all the fundamental elements necessary to attain calm-abiding according to Buddha's teachings : the preparations, the posture, the necessary conditions, the hindrances and how to overcome them, etc.Each course includes first an explanation on how to develop the mind's calm abiding according to Buddhist philosophy, followed by a period of meditation in silence. This group practice can give more power to our meditation. The attainment of mind's calmness and all the elements that make it possible to cultivate it are presented in a traditional image.This session will be given mainly by Buddhist monk Tenzin Gawa, with some classes given by Tibetan Monk Lama Samten and last class by Ya-Lin Li.Friday evening (7:00pm till 8:15pm)During: 12 weeks ( Sept 20th to Dec 6th)Contact: yalin@paramitamontreal.org or (437) 888-8864Cost: 96$ (You can also pay by interac transfer to : contact@paramitacentre.org)
