Description

The diverse buddhist lineages are united in seeing that suffering arises from ignoring what is and attaching to what is not. Once we attach to a sense of being a separate self, an individual with our own essence and substance, we establish a territory to be defended and experience the anxiety this generates. In this meeting we will explore several buddhist views of how to deconstruct our sense of self and reveal what this illusion has obscured.

This lecture will be preceeded by an SSIUK Lecture on Friday 18th January on the same topic.

James Low
James Low is a disciple and teacher in the Byangter and Khordong lineages of the late Chimed Rigdzin Lama.

He began studying and practising Tibetan Buddhism in India in the 1960’s and received teachings from Kalu Rinpoche, Chatral Rinpoche, Kanjur Rinpoche and Dudjom Rinpoche. Having met his root teacher, Chimed Rigdzin Lama (also known as C R Lama), he lived in his home in West Bengal, India for many years, serving him as required and being taught many aspects of the tradition. During this period in India James did several retreats and pilgrimages in the Himalayas. In the 1970’s and 1980’s, on his return to Europe, he also had teachings and guidance from Chogyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche.
