Diamond Way Teachers’ Lectures

EC Blog Archive for May, 2016

Recently we started to have a lecture by a Diamond Way Teacher every Saturday, and sometimes even for several lectures on one weekend.

Lama Ole Nydahl has asked more than 100 of his experienced students to travel and share their experience and knowledge of Diamond Way Buddhism around the world–the Diamond Way teachers.

We had the pleasure of welcoming teachers from Germany, Russia, Hungary, Israel, Slovenia, Italy and other countries over the past months, and many more of course still to come. Amongst others, the lecture topics were “Meditation, Action and View”, “The Sangha”, “The Student-Teacher-Relationship in Diamond Way Buddhism” and “The History of the Karma Kagyu Lineage”.

Please join us on Saturday evenings for the lectures and please check our Facebook page or event calendar for updates frequently!

On the full moon day of May, Buddhists all over the world commemorate events of significance to Buddhists of all traditions: The birth, enlightenment and the parinirvana of Buddha Shakyamuni.

As Buddhism spread from India it was assimilated into many foreign cultures, and consequently Vesakh is celebrated in many different ways all over the world.

Thanks to superb weather, we were able to celebrate it with lots of meditation inside and outside, by making wishes for the good of all beings at the Stupa, as well as with a BBQ dinner (and watching soccer :) ) with lots of friends under the beautiful full moon shining over the EC.

Welcome home, families!

The so-called 2nd House of the Europe Center might not be the biggest of the buildings, but most certainly it’s one with a lot of life inside. It’s our family house. Come check it out!

Both resident and visiting families are bringing the old servants’ home of Gut Hochreute to life. With four families living there and often enough up to three more families visiting on the weekends or during the Summer Course, it might well be called courageous of two other single residents to live there as well – but they love it and so do we! :)
