Friday, February 19th (19–21): How to Meditate
Saturday, February 20th (10–16) : The Buddha and His Teachings
We will take a brief look at the life of the Buddha, his main teachings, the spread of Buddhism, and the different schools of Buddhism in the world today. The main focus will be on the Buddha’s formula for how to attain peace and happiness by understanding and practicing the Four Noble Truths. Teaching will consist talks, meditations and discussions (with tea and lunch breaks).
In autumn 2016 The FPMT Center in Copenhagen will start the Basic Program, which is a substantial, twelve-subject course of studies designed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche which can be followed also online on internet. Before the Basic Program the center will provide a Preparation Course that will consist of four modules, which will be The Buddha and His Teachings, The Two Truths, The Mind and Its Potential and The Path to Enlightenment.
The teaching on Saturday belongs to the first of the four Preparation Course modules but is accessible for anybody interested. The first module’s weekly teaching starts already on Thursday 11th February and can be followed online or afterwards on Youtube. More information: www.fpmt.dk
