LA Launch of 'Wisdom in Exile - Buddhism and Modern Times'

  • Dechen LA

Lama Jampa's new book 'Wisdom in Exile' explores the space that exists for Buddhism in contemporary culture, a space created by the failure of our dominant systems of thought. With its emphasis on bringing together intelligence and contemplative experience, Buddhism offers an authentic way to liberation in these modern times.

However, as Lama Jampa Thaye argues, it is crucial that the temptation to assimilate Buddhism to the ruling ideologies of our age be resisted. Thus 'Wisdom in Exile' delineates the distinctive features of Buddhist thought and practice as well as presenting the training in meditation and compassion that is the heart of the Buddhist path.

Wisdom in Exile proposes a fresh approach to Buddhism, one in which the fundamental tenets of the Buddha’s teachings are rediscovered.” (His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin, head of the Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism)

Copies of the book will be on sale at the event.

Lama Jampa will give teachings on this famous prayer composed by Pengkar Jampal Zangpo using the commentary by Karma Chagme Rinpoche.

The prayer is very important because it has two purposes: firstly that when we chant this prayer and meditate, it brings about an enhancement of mahamudra itself, so the prayer is a way of giving rise to mahamudra and stabilising the mahamudra experience; the second benefit of this prayer is that it contains the major stages of the Kagyu path, so that if one wants a very short summary of Kagyupa teachings one can find it in this beautiful short prayer.'
