DALAI LAMA in RIGA ‒ Philosophy of Wisdom and Kindness
September 23th‒24th at Skonto Hall (Skonto Halle)

Following numerous requests to continue his teachings in Riga His Holiness the Dalai Lama once again shares his wisdom with the Baltic States and neighboring countries.

In September 23th‒24th the world famous spiritual leader will grant his teachings on two major Buddhist works: «Stages of Meditation» (Bhavanakrama) by Kamalashila and «Concise Lamrim» (Lamrim dudon) by Je Tsongkhapa.

The first text written by an Indian scholar is explaining a correct approach to mediation, while the second one written by a Tibetan scholar is exposing consecutive stages leading to enlightenment.

Kamalashila is one of the seventeen great scholars (panditas) of Nalanda, a major monastic university in ancient India. His Holiness the Dalai Lama often says that he considers Tibetan masters to be spiritual heirs of Nalanda. The most well-known among them is Je Tsongkhapa, author of «Concise Lamrim» who has been respected in Tibet on a par to Buddha.

The teachings in Riga is a wonderful opportunity to study works by spiritual teachers coming from two sacred lands – India that gave birth to Buddha and brilliant thinkers of Nalanda, and  Tibet that has been preserving and developing the legacy of ancient India.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama finds the spiritual legacy of Nalanda very relevant to the modern world.

Tibetan Buddhism, with its roots in the Nalanda tradition, is the most comprehensive Buddhist tradition today. And although religious practice of Buddhism is only of interest to Buddhists, the traditions of logic and epistemology, as well as the science of mind and emotions, can be of benefit to everyone”, says His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

The Buddha’s teaching that once came from India to Tibet and further to Mongolia and Buddhist regions of Russia is now benefitting people of various religious beliefs all over the world.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama teachings for the Baltic States and Russia have been held in Riga since 2014 and  are open to everyone, both Buddhists and those who are simply interested in the Buddhist philosophy that harmoniously combines profound wisdom and limitless compassion.
