Finding Happiness in a World of Competition

Today, we live in a competitive world. In every walk of life, competition seems to bring with it tremendous emotional stress. How can we find happiness and the peace of mind? What message has the Buddha’s teachings got to offer in facing the world with the peace of mind? Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche will speak on this topic and explain how the Buddhist teachings can be applied to daily living, in a secular context

Bathing the Buddha
This is a beautiful ceremony performed in connection with Buddha Poornima in many countries that follow Mahayana Buddhism. It originated in ancient India and is explained in “Bodhicaryāvatāra” by Shantideva.
In its outer form, it is to commemorate the birth of Siddhartha Gautama (Sakyamuni Buddha). As Queen Mahāmāya gave birth to Siddhartha in Lumbini Gardens , the little prince took seven strides and declared his arrival. Out of great joy the celestial beings assembled and made clouds of offerings of flowers, music, bath and cloths.

In its essence, this practice symbolizes inner ablution - the cleansing away of our defilements, the cultivation of the six perfections and knowing the Buddha within us. By performing this practice with the correct understanding and visualization, we purify negativities and accumulate great virtues. Rinpoche will explain the purpose and meaning of this ceremony and lead its performance.
Resting the Mind Naturally

Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche will teach a meditation to bring the mind to rest naturally. This is a profound, but simple meditation from the shamata (clam-abiding) preliminaries to Mahasandhi-yoga (Dzogchen) practice.
