Special sessions of meditation in TeaK
I am glad to announce that the fourth season of ‘Silence-medtation-practice’ is open at the University of the Arts – Theatre Academy of Helsinki (TeaK – Haapaniemenkatu 6).
Since 2013, meditation teachers of different backgrounds are invited as special guests to offer free seminars to the students and the staff members of the University of the Arts, and to all interested people.
Our first guest will be Ani Sherab, Tibetan Buddhist nun, on Saturday 20th February at 14-16 in room 535.
You are all warmly welcome!
Buddhist views answer, formally or tacitly, such basic questions as:
- Why am I alive? Has life a purpose?
- Why do things happen (the way they do), to myself and to the world?
- Is there some ultimate reality or ultimate being, such as God or soul?
- Is there life after death?
- Was there life before this life?
- Why are some events seemingly so unfair?
- Is my mind just a product of my biology?
- Are ethics simply a personal choice or is there a natural, universal ethic?
- Who or what created this universe and its beings?
Throughout the special session we will have the opportunity to touch some of these questions or other ones, as well as do some simple meditation.
Having taken nun’s vows in Tibetan Buddhist tradition over 25 years ago Ani Sherab is currently practicing in her home town Helsinki. She has spent seven years in long retreats under the guidance of eminent Buddhist lamas of Kagyu Samye Ling Tibetan Centre in Scotland. Since 1997 Ani teaches and conducts retreats in Finland.
