Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre Winter Programme 2011/12 Bawnboy, Co. Cavan

Jampa Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre Winter Programme 2011/12 


Jampa Ling are honoured and grateful that Ven. Lama Panchen Otrul Rinpoche will give a course of teachings this winter. This is a rare opportunity to hear these profound teachings  from a high Tibetan Lama, who embodies what he teaches and is himself a great practitioner and scholar. 

OCTOBER 22nd – 23rd        
The greatness of the teachings using the three Paths.
1. The qualities of a teacher. The qualities required of a student.
2. How to rely on a spiritual teacher.
3. Preciousness of having a human life.
4. The impermanence of existence.

NOVEMBER 19th – 20th        
The practice, using the first stage of the Path.
1. Mindfulness of death and the lower realms.
2. The practice of taking refuge.
3. Karma and the Law of Cause and Effect.
DECEMBER 10th – 11th        
The practice, using the second stage of the Path.
1. Cyclic existence and the suffering of samsara.
2. The Four Noble Truths.

FEBRUARY 10th – 11th        
The practice, using the third stage of the Path.
Practice of Bodhicitta.
Without having had teachings, without having contemplated and meditated on the precious nature of human existence, on death, on the karmic law of cause and effect, on the nature of samsaric suffering, on refuge and on the Four Noble Truths, it is very difficult to have a realistic attitude towards Bodhicitta.
MARCH 10th – 11th        
The practice, using the third stage of the Path.
Training in the Six Perfections.
The six perfections are: Generosity, Morality, Patience, Diligence, Meditation and Wisdom.

APRIL 6th – 9th        
Easter Retreat
This is a silent retreat. It is a led retreat using meditations on the teachings given by Ven. Panchen Otrul Rinpoche over the winter teachings. It is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the teachings and integrate them into our daily lives.

Painting of St. Peter’s Church, Templeport, Bawnboy, Co. Cavan


St. Peter’s Church, Templeport Lake, Bawnboy,Co. Cavan

My uncle David Seamer who lives in England painted this picture of St. Peter’s Church and Templeport Lake from a photo we sent over. We love it, he even put our house in the picture, just to the left of the Church.

Monday the 1st of August is the annual boat trip to St. Mogue’s Island on the lake, there is always a large crowd and I think from the picture a person can see why people love to come to the shores of Templeport Lake. More information on Bawnboy, Templeport and St. Mogue can be found on www.bawnboy.com
