Public talk at Bodhi Path, Karlsruhe - Thursday September 21st
'We had the huge honor that Lama Jampa Thaye visited Karlsruhe on September 21st and gave a public talk about Buddhism in modern times. In his very clear way he gave an overview of where Buddhism is located in the spiritual landscape and emphasised its timeless value for all sentient beings. With a lot of depth and profundity he talked about the importance of the main tools on the buddhist path, study, reflection and meditation, and how their proper combination leads us to awakening.'
