El Mandala FPMT con Su Santidad el Dalai Lama en la Ciudad de México. Gracias a todos por su servicio a los seres, por abrir su corazón, fomentar la armonía y por cultivar la mente de la iluminación. Ahora, a seguir las instrucciones que Su Santidad recomendó para los Centros y Grupos de Lama Zopa Rinpoche FPMT Mexico.
The FPMT Mandala with His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Mexico City. Thank you all for your service to all beings, for opening your heart, promoting harmony and cultivating the mind of enlightenment. Now, follow the instructions that His Holiness recommended for FPMT Mexico, the centers and study groups of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
According to dalailama.com, on October 13, “Immediately after he had arrived at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico this morning His Holiness the Dalai Lama met with representatives of two local Buddhist groups. He was keen to explain to them that performing rituals and saying prayers is fine up to a point, but in the 21st century it is important to understand what Buddhism is about, which requires study. He also told them that scientists and others are taking greater interest in Buddhism for what it can tell them about the mind. A project is underway to compile materials from the Kangyur and Tengyur related to Buddhist science, philosophy and religion, which will make them easier to study in an academic way. He encouraged the making of such provisions in Dharma centers too.”
