Lecture on ‘Buddhist Refuge’ with Wojtek Tracewski

Tuesday, 31. January

What is Buddhist refuge and what does it mean for a Diamondway Buddhist? Buddhist Group Aarhus invites you to a public lecture with the Diamondway teacher Wojtek Tracewski from Poland. We take refuge every day, let it be in money, our car, our family or our friends. But none of these are lasting, so what does a Buddhist take refuge in? This and more will be topic of the evening.

About Wojtek: Born in 1962, Wojtek graduated from Art Academy of Warsaw and was for several years a painter. He took Buddhist refuge with Lama Ole Nydahl in 1980, and in 1988 he started to translate his lectures and books. At the request of Lama Ole, he began giving lectures himself in 1992. He is currently the editor-in-chief of the Polish Buddhist magazine “Diamond Way”.

Lecture on ‘Love & Compassion’

Tuesday 27. September

 

On 27 September the Canadian couple Chris and Susan Bixby are visiting Aarhus Buddhist Center to hold a public lecture about “Love and Compassion” in Diamondway Buddhism. There will be a common guided mediation after.

The goal of Buddhism is a state of lasting, unconditional happiness known as enlightenment. Buddhist methods help us to recognize the own nature of mind – the own Buddha nature – which is spontaneous joy, fearlessness and active compassion.

Chris and Susan Bixby met Lama Ole Nydahl in 1994 and started to hold lectures in 2006. During the last 20 years they were involved with work for Diamondway Buddhism in North America, Chris as a lawyer and Susan with communication work. The couple has been married for 43 years and has three kids. They live on a farm at the bottom of the Rocky Mountains, where many Diamondway teachers have been for retreat over time.

The lecture will be held in English and starts at 19:30, the entry fee is 75kr. There will also be a common dinner for those who want, at 18:00, where everyone is very welcome to join.

Buddhist practices are based on meditation and experiences not on believing. Therefore, it suits people well who have a critical mind, who want to find a practice they can incorporate into their daily life.
