Tibetan meditation - Discovering inner peace

A series of teachings and fundamentals in meditation

by Lama Jigmé Namgyal

Life is full of challenges and discomfort, or ‘dis-ease’. The current COVID pandemic makes us poignantly aware of it, producing its own set of physical and metal difficulties. Many of us are facing uncertainties on many levels, be they of personal, professional or societal nature.

Meditation, then, can be a powerful tool to keep both mind and body in a state of healthy equilibrium. In particular, the authentic practice of meditation, based on the ancient wisdom traditions of Asia, trains the mind to not to be disturbed by fleeting emotions or feelings. As such, it is far more than a simple feel-good practice.

When the mind abides in its natural state of calm and clear, we can face challenges with less stress and less worries. This in turn allows us to take wiser decisions, and eventually to free us from suffering and its underlying causes. Furthermore, we will be able to connect with the intrinsic qualities of our being, such as good-heartedness and compassion. Rather than being carried away by the turbulent winds of discursive thoughts and disturbing emotions, we come to discover the sky-like presence of our true nature, which reveals itself like the sun emerging behind the clouds.

Lama Jigmé Namgyal will teach about what authentic meditation is and what the benefits are. These sessions are open to all, irrespective of religious background, nationality or experience in meditation.

Lama Jigmé Namgyal was born into a nomad family in Golog, in the eastern part of Tibet, where he studied Buddhism from a young age. His root teacher was Khenpo Jigmé Phuntsok Rinpoche, with whom he studied at the university of Serthar Larung Gar for nine years.

After consulting his teachers, Lama Jigmé Namgyal decided to leave Tibet for Europe. He founded the Tibetan Cultural Center in Luxembourg as well as the Phuntsok Chö Ling Buddhist Center in Rotterdam. Furthermore, he raised Golog Support Foundation to provide medical care and education in remote areas of Golog, and Compassionate Leadership, aimed at bringing ethical decision taking into corporate management through training in mindfulness and compassion. This also includes an on-going programme at the Dutch army.

Lama Jigmé has much experience in spiritually accompanying the dying and is also deeply interested in inter-religious dialogue. Through his pithy sense of humour, he is able to connect with his Western audience in an open and direct way, and to communicate an experience beyond words.
