With a public talk and benefit dinner for the children at First United Methodist Church of Pittsburgh.
His Holiness, advice 33rd Menri Trizin, Abbot of Menri Monastery, Dolanji, India will give a talk entitled: Ordinary Mind and the True Nature of Mind from 3-5pm at First United Methodist Church of Pittsburgh. There will be a benefit dinner to follow at 6:30pm. Proceeds from both events will benefit the children and nuns at Menri Monastery, Dolanji, India.
All beings of this universe wish to be happy and free from pain and suffering. However, not having understood and realized the ordinary mind and the true nature of the mind, we experience fear, misunderstanding, and confusion. Consequently, desire-attachment, impure motivation, and attachment to the self arise, and we become vulnerable and continuously distressed. We need to recognize the characteristic nature of the ordinary mind and the true nature of the mind. Through this recognition we learn how to be and to leave each thing as it is in its natural state.
His Holiness will offer this talk and blessing from an unbroken lineage that has continued throughout the centuries up through the present spiritual head of Bon, the 33rd Menri Trizin Rinpoche himself.
His Holiness the 33rd Menri Trizin is the spiritual head of Bon, one of Tibetâ€™s five main spiritual traditions, and the 33rd abbot of Menri Monastery in Himachal Pradesh, India. Originally based in Tibet since 1405 and re-established in India in 1967 by His Holiness, Menri Monastery is the main spiritual center of Bon offering higher philosophical studies and the Bon Geshe (doctor of philosophy) degree. The Redna Menling nunnery at Menri offers the same spiritual education opportunities to Bon nuns. Currently there are about 500 monks and nuns at Menri
