Program of Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche’s Visit to Moscow

Wednesday, December 2 at 7:30 pm
A public talk by Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche “Couple and Relationship”

Conference hall of the Yunost Hotel, Khamovnichesky Val 34, Moscow, Sportivnaya Metro station

Talking about personal relationships, we usually refer to couple relationship. In time of peace, or during war time or crisis, relationships remain of vital importance. Fondness, passion, love, enthusiasm, happiness, anger, hatred, torpor, disillusion are all part of couple relationship experience. At first everything is exciting and promising, but when underlying problems come out later on, we are not ready to face them. So, our relationships start to fall apart. Even strong and happy couples admit that at times they had trouble getting along with each other.

Accomplished Buddhist master Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche will share his opinion and insight with us.

Free entrance. The event is open to all.

The Tibetan term Ngondro refers to the preliminary practices in Vajrayana Buddhism. Ngondro practice helps us to dispel gross obstacles created by our body, speech and mind and to accumulate merit. Ngondro practice consists of a series of accumulations and it is the foundation required for further Vajrayana practice.

“If we practice Ngondro, it means that we are practicing the very key point, and that we really want to achieve enlightenment.” Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche
