We are very happy to inform you that ven. Benchen Khenpo Karma Woesung will be visiting Europe Benchen Phuntsok Ling, Allmuthen.
Khenpo La is the teacher of Yangsi Tenga Rinpoche.
He is a monk of Benchen Monastery, obtained his Khenpo degree at the Shedra in Rumtek and completed a traditional three-year retreat at the Benchen Retreat Centre in Pharping. He thus combines the qualities of a scholar and practitioner in one person.
On two weekends in March Khenpa La offered to practice Shine (Shamatha) together with him.
The practice of Shine (Sanskrit Shamatha) is the supreme method to achieve true peace and happiness. The quality of our human life not only depends on external development or material progress but also on the inner development of peace and happiness.
For that Shine is the foundation. "Shi" means peace or peaceful, "ne" means abiding. If we practice Shine gradually with diligence and patience our distracting thoughts will eventually subside and we will experience a sense of inner peace and relaxation which in turn will enable us to gain penetrative insight (Lhagtong, Sanskrit Vipashyana). This will benefit ourselves and others.
