Public Talks

Mind or Heart - Which Can I Trust?

Public Talk with His Eminence Dzogchen Rinpoche

Nowadays it can sometimes be quite difficult to make a decision or a good plan for our life, health, family or business. There seem to be so many possibilities and although we believe in the freedom of choice and will, we can sometimes not be so sure what our decisions are really based on.

Our mind is constantly influenced by media, politics, fashion, social standards and contradictory information all of which can be confusing to the point where we cannot be sure what to trust, or if what we follow is what we really want. Instead we might often find ourselves being guided mainly by fear and worries rather than by common sense, and end up being unhappy instead of improving our lives.

In this Public Talk His Eminence Dzogchen Rinpoche will help us to better understand heart and mind through the ancient wisdom called Dzogchen and explain which to trust.

Kön Chog Chidü Long Life Empowerments and Teachings

Mind and Heart - What's the Difference?

Empowerments and Teachings with Dzogchen Rinpoche

We create obstacles in our precious human life when we lack tse [strength of life], le [karma] and sonam [merit]. We can repair our life's strength by receiving the extraordinary blessings of the Long Life Empowerment; the antidote for premature and accidental death. His Eminence Dzogchen Rinpoche will grant the "Kön chog Chidü, Guru Rinpoche Long life" empowerment and will introduce us to how we can repair our lack of karma through animal liberation and how we can accumulate merit through making offerings to the three kayas and through generosity to all sentient beings.

In the afternoon session Dzogchen Rinpoche will further outline in detail how to recognise the difference between mind and heart by seeing everything as it is rather than judging, thus reconnecting to our true values and who we really are. This view, explained and realised through the authentic and ancient teaching of the Dzogchen Lineage, is of great benefit to our daily life even on a very practical level and brings about a real change.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
