Public Lecture: Buddhist Refuge

By Sunday Lecture, Buddhist Centre Event on 26th March 2017 at 2:00 pm in , . Price £7

On Sunday 26th March 2017, the London Diamond Way Buddhist Centre is pleased to invite you to a public lecture. The topic will be “Buddhist Refuge” and the talk will be given by a lay Buddhist teacher Jeroen van Rongen from Netherlands.

Buddhist Refuge
While changing, impermanent phenomena can only bring temporary happiness and suffering, the nature of mind itself is timeless and as such is a lasting refuge. Its realisation through profound methods and support on the way brings forth the inherent fearlessness, joy and compassion of our true nature. This talk addresses the meaning of these central values of Buddhism.

Jeroen van Rongen has been a student of Lama Ole Nydahl since 2007, and in 2015 he was asked by him to teach Diamond Way Buddhism. Jeroen has lived at the Rotterdam Diamond Way Buddhist Centre since 2007 and was appointed President of the Dutch Diamond Way publishing house in 2011. He has been a major driving force behind the Channel Project, which brings together friends from Diamond Way centres in France, Belgium and the UK. Jeroen is a qualified accountant and business consultant. Although on occasion he still consults companies in financial or organisational distress, his main day-to-day work is the co-management of his wholesale stone carving art supplies company.
