"Dharma - the Buddha's teaching - is the best thing that has ever happened to me. People often say that the Truth About Suffering seems depressing to them - it was encouraging for me, I finally learned how things are, that eternal slight dissatisfaction is normal in our ordinary existence, but also that there is a way out of it. . I am always pleased when I talk to people who also intuitively feel that happiness does not lie in material things, in the fulfillment of some momentary desires. I think Buddhism has a lot to offer. And of course, I am also pleased that many of my Dharma friends here in the Czech Republic have been studying various texts with me and discussing and meditating on them for several years. I appreciate their perseverance and commitment. "
We are preparing Dharma workshop with Tenzin Palmo in August 2022 in Tibet Open House. Details will follow.
