Introduction to Buddhism (Day 3)

Intro Buddhism Jamyang London

About the Course
Are you curious about Buddhism? Many sophisticated techniques for developing mental health can be found in ancient Buddhist teachings, such as mindfulness, compassion and selflessness. These methods have been well researched and documented in various fields of contemporary science. In this course we’ll explore the fundamental aspects of the Buddhist tradition, including the analysis of the human condition encapsulated by the teaching of the Four Noble Truths, as well as the nature of the mind and reality. We’ll also learn how to apply this knowledge in our daily life. Our resident teacher, Geshe Namdak, will clearly explain the traditional teachings of the Buddha in a down-to-earth and practical way.

About Geshe Namdak
Our Resident Teacher, Geshe Tenzin Namdak, was given full ordination by HH Dalai Lama and completed the twenty-year-long Geshe degree. A Dutch citizen who teaches in English, he’s known for his warm, gentle and inclusive style.

Is this for me?
Absolutely! If you are interested in how philosophies and practices derived from the Buddhist tradition could help you develop resilience, mental clarity and emotional intelligence, you’re welcome to come along. These classes are not about converting you to Buddhism; they’re about giving you the tools to improve your well-being.

What can I expect?
A comprehensive introductory overview of the Buddhist worldview, philosophy and practice, delivered by a world-class teacher.

About the Teacher

Roy Sutherwood

Roy Sutherwood is a former Trustee and Director of Jamyang London Buddhist Centre, and an FPMT recognised teacher. He has studied under masters of Buddhist philosophy and meditation for many years. He facilitates classes in Tibetan Buddhism at the Buddhist Society and is also a qualified teacher of secular Mindfulness techniques.

 

About the Course
The popularity of mindfulness and meditation has accelerated dramatically in recent years, in no small part due to the increasing number of scientific research papers which corroborate the efficacy of such practices for developing greater emotional intelligence, focus, decision making capacity, and general mental health. These meditation techniques originated in ancient India, and were adopted and adapted by the Buddhist tradition. This course provides an introductory overview of meditation, with each session devoted to a specific type of meditation that is fundamental to Tibetan Buddhism. These include:

  • Shamata Also known as calm abiding or concentration meditation, this type of meditation enables the development of a composed, calm and tranquil mind.
  • The Four Immeasurables This is the term for a set of analytical meditations which help to foster the wholesome emotions of Love, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity.
  • Wisdom The last session will be on a simple analytical meditation aimed at gaining an insight into the true nature of the self.

Is this for me?
Absolutely! This course is for all who wish to develop practical meditation methods which they can apply to improve their daily lives, whether or not they identify as Buddhists, and regardless of their prior experience of meditation.

What can I expect?
A comprehensive introductory overview of Buddhist meditation and its potential to improve the mental wellbeing of those who practice it.
