The Two Truths and Quantum Physics (on site + online)

Mind Training for Human Development and for Mental Hygiene in the 21st Century (on site + online)

Seminar | Geshe Damchoe Gyaltsen

First we will look at the theory of evolution from the perspective of Tibetan Buddhist science and logic. Geshe Damchoe offers a refreshing and insightful approach to evolution and genetics. His logical approach allows us to reflect and develop a critical understanding of how theories affect our everyday behavior, our view of the world, and our ability to be happy. On Sunday, Geshe-la will spend time contemplating the current situation in the world. Nowadays, mental hygiene is a big challenge as we see fear, anxiety and depression increasing. It's time to take a step back and look at Buddhist teachings to learn about the five crucial aspects that help us develop mental well-being and inner peace.

Note: Geshe-la teaches in Tibetan, will be translated into German. On Friday (Aug. 19) there will be an additional lecture with Geshe Damchoe Gyaltsen on "The Two Truths and Quantum Physics."
