Meditation Course in Rabten Choeling

Sommer Meditation Course

Rabten Choeling • Centre Tibétain • 1801 Le Mont-Pèlerin • tel: +41 21 9213600 • info@rabten.ch

These summer meditation courses have been started by the Most Venerable Geshe Rabten Rinpoche in 1981 in Les Avants, Switzerland. Since 1986 the Most Venerable Gonsar Rinpoche has continued these teachings every year.

It was Geshe Rinpoche's intention to provide disciples seriously interested in an effective practice of Dharma with a week of intensive teachings and meditation in an environment free of distraction, so that they can experience the depth and vastness of Lord Buddha's words, and thus make these a most precious part of their lives.

The Seven Points of Meditation

Venerable Rinpoche will give explanations on the seven types of essential mediations and introduce all the necessary foundations of thought and practice at the same time. These teachings will be a rare opportunity to encounter the methods for a deep and effective practice of Dharma.
