Studying and meditating at PCL
From August 24, 2020, all classes started their programs. Every evening has its own subject and approach. On Mondays and Wednesdays, the program is coordinated with Luxembourg and Lama Jigmé will give teachings to both centers via internet at the same time. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the emphasis is on joint practice. In all classes you meditate and / or study with others at the level that appeals to you. This way you inspire each other and meditation really becomes part of your daily life. You can see the total Buddhist doctrine as a very large supermarket. You can choose what you like to eat, do the shopping, and then prepare the meal. This example shows that it is really about learning and choosing what is right for you.
Please note: As long as measures are in place to prevent the spread of the corona virus, classes can also be followed online on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays *
