Symbols in Buddhism

11 a.m. | Lecture

Eva Preschern, art historian, Manfred Seegers, Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in religious sciences

Statues, thankas (rolled paintings), etc. in tibeltian Buddhism are porters of a profound symbolism, that go above pure artistic aspects. With the background of the Buddhist teachings, the meditation utilities help to recognise the nature of mind. During the lecture the most prominent symbols will be presented and explained.


Meditation in Diamondway-Buddhism

3 p.m. | Lecture Lama Ole Nydahl

Meditation in Buddhism is defined as "effortless dwelling on what is". This state is reached through  the calming and onepointedness of mind or work with inner energies and light shapes. The constant identification with our own Buddha nature is the most effective way to reach this state not only during meditation but also in everyday life – as it is taught in Diamondway Buddhism.


The Great Seal - Space and Boundless Bliss

8 p.m.  | Lecture by Lama Ole Nydahl

In the development of view and meditation practise of the great Seal, a row of methods are exercised by the practioners  in order to experience a clear and immediate experience of the nature of realness. Studies and practice of these teachings fortify compassion and wisdom.

The view of the great seal is compared with the painting of a picture in water. Everything which occurs in a moment and simultaneously dissolves at the same time. This is the dimension of enlighted  actions: here and now, aside from expectations and  fears, without retaining or pushing away.
