|Dear Friends of the Ripa International Sangha,
According to the Buddha’s teachings, emotions are a fundamental part of who we are, an expression of our basic intelligence and creative energy. Connecting to our essence without judging or repressing helps release our powerful and creative energy to respond wisely and constructively to everyday situations. Furthermore, according to the Vajrayana Buddhist path, the five wisdom energies provide a framework for transforming them into wisdom and compassion.
During this upcoming weekend’s teachings at the Ripa International Center in Switzerland, Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche will present different tools that the Buddhist path offers for working with our emotions. The program will be taught in English with translation into German, French, Spanish, Russian and Vietnamese.
