Tsering Paldron visit change of venue for 14th October

 

We have been fortunate to secure a visit from Tsering Paldron whilst she is briefly in the UK, she is a nun who is currently living in Portugal and is a long term student of Rinpoche.

She will be with us at our home base, Bosham House, Hamblin Hall on Sunday 14th October from 10.00 – 4.00 and will be sharing her thoughts and experience of Green Tara and the practise of Green Tara the Bodhisattva who frees beings from fear.

No need to book but it would be helpful if you can email to let us know you are coming so we have an idea of numbers.  We will be having a shared lunch, so you are invited to bring some vegetarian food to share.

This is a brief extract from Tsering’s website: http://www.tseringpaldron.net/

When I left Portugal in 1973 (heavens, I am so old!) The word self-esteem did not yet exist. Consequently, one would be more at peace with yourself and others less but nobody suffered from low self-esteem because nobody knew what it was.

This is the problem of words and concepts: from the moment that there are shape and transform reality – often complicating it.

After that I lived 22 years in a world where nobody told me about self-esteem. Rather Buddhist teachings … I heard during these two decades all spoke of how pampered less ego. Of how much more we are focusing more about us and how we suffer, to be happy, you may want to think more about others and less on themselves. So the first time I came across the word self-esteem reacted with surprise to an alien: what the hell would that be and how it could be a good thing to have yourself in high regard?
