a new poem

Sometimes, in the face of natural disasters and unbearable human suffering, all we can do is calm our minds ... open our hearts to others... while resting in our True Nature.

Here is a new poem intended to embody the three main aspects of the Buddha's teachings: Peace, Compassion, and Wisdom.

After that is the poster for my teacher's visit to Dublin. 
The topic for the weekend teachings is particularly appropriate to the times we live in.
Please spread the word to anyone you think may be inspired.


Pacify the Surface of Mind.
Transcend it altogether, quite Naturally.

Open the Heart of Compassion.
Engage with the world this way.

Rest in the Buddha Nature, your True Essence:
Natural, Open, Awake.

The Bodhicharya Ireland Weekend Teachings, on 9th and 10th April 2011, will be on ‘Turning Suffering and Happiness into Enlightenment’ by Dodrupchen Jigmé Tenpé Nyima (1865 – 1926), who was the third incarnation of the Dodrupchen Lineage. The talk takes place at the Hilton Hotel Kilmainham, Dublin. These teachings raise funds for Rinpoche’s charity projects. To find out more visit Bodhicharya Ireland’s blog.

Also, three evening talks will take place at Kagyu Samye Dzong. The topic will be ‘The Works of the First Karmapa‘, Düsom Khyenpa. This year is the 900th anniversary of the Karmapa lineage and to mark this, Rinpoche will be giving progressive teachings  from the same text at centres throughout Europe. The evening talks at Kagyu Samye Dzong run from Wednesday 6th – Friday 8th April.
