Member Ani Jampa Künsang, German-born, is a Buddhist nun and teacher of Buddhism, with long experience in studies, meditation and Buddhist practices.
Jampa will give us a short overview over the roots of this old Indian philosophy, telling us who the Buddha was, what he taught, and which main philosophical lines are practised currently.
Enlightenment is understood as a state of mind where all suffering, anxiety and dissatisfaction are overcome and where that person abides in eternal happiness. It can be achieved by intense training, including devotion and meditation. A fully enlightened Buddha because of his omniscience and great skill is able to help all beings to attain total freedom from anxiety and even death.
