Phowa – Study Week

7-day study week with Lama Jigmé Namgyal, in Rotterdam or online

Phowa is an authentic, traditional and extraordinary Mahayana method or meditation practice to transform any negative emotion or thought. Whether you are a Buddhist or not, follow a religion or not, one day we will all die. We do not know when we will die nor can we avoid death. Are you sure you won’t be frightened at the time of death? So now is the time to seize this great opportunity to learn and practice.

The practice of Phowa is a very powerful method that instantly purifies your perception. Phowa is meditation with wisdom. To practice it, it is important to experience the true nature of the mind. If we have trained this enough during our lifetime, we will be able to use this method at the time of our death. Then, when the time comes, we will be able to successfully transfer our consciousness. Only the body dies and the mind then, depending on the level of the practitioner, will know many ways to achieve true freedom. And will be liberated from all suffering.

Lama Jigmé is a very experienced authentic teacher, who received this methodology himself from an extraordinary and authentic master of a pure, short and authentic lineage. To receive teachings from him is a rare opportunity which will benefit you in many ways. His way of teaching is open and direct. His teachings are very practical and accessible to the public. It is Lama Jigmé’s deepest aspiration to share these teachings with those who wish to receive them, thereby supporting people at the most important and vulnerable point in their lives: the moment of death.

This Phowa Study Week is intended for those who have previously received Phowa instruction from Lama Jigmé, such as the Phowa Introduction Weekend (December 10th to 11th, 2021). Or for those with dedication and a background in Buddhism and meditation.

Because Phowa is a profound and powerful practice, it is only suitable for people without major mental limitations and who are emotionally stable. Please take your responsibility in this.

Due to the nature of these teachings, online participation is only possible for students who have previously received the Phowa teachings from Lama Jigmé and after approval from Lama Jigmé. Please explain the reason for your online participation when registering.
