Wisdom and compassion are compared in the traditions of Buddhist mind training to the two wings of a mighty bird, which allow the long flight over the ocean of Saṃsāra to awakening. The development of these qualities became the central theme in the spiritual literature from the onset of Indian Mahāyāna Buddhism.
In this seminar Christof Spitz will present some typical text passages which can inspire to discover and promote these abilities within ourselves. They open up an inner dimension in which we grow personally to the challenges of human life, strengthen our autonomy and develop an ethical attitude that is not based merely on following rules, but on mindfulness towards ourselves and others.
The seminar will focus on sharing what this deep spirituality of a great cultural heritage means to us today and how we can integrate some of it into our current lives. Practical meditation exercises will be conducted, too.
