About Buddhism

Buddhism beyond Buddhism – Discovering Revolutionary Enlightenment

Become Reality bending superhuman

Do you have your own ideas about what Buddhism is?

What if these ideas are actually holding you back from the true joy, compassion, and enlightenment that’s available to you in each moment?

If we long for a deep inner revolution, we may need to break out of the box we live in and not be contained by any one system of beliefs.

According to Robert Thurman, one of the foremost teachers of Buddhist practices in the West, bringing the spirit of unpredictability, revolution, and zaniness into the realm of spiritual practice is essential so it doesn’t become stodgy, dessicated, and devoid of real liberating power.

On Saturday, May 5, Robert will give you a taste of “Buddhism beyond Buddhism” and the freedom from all dogma that can lead you to the direct recognition of reality as it truly is.

Robert is known for his unpredictable wit and storytelling as much as for his knowledge of ancient canonical texts, which is perhaps why he and the Dalai Lama, who delights in mischief and laughter, have become such close friends.

In this freewheeling hour you’ll:

  • Discover why it’s important to take the Buddhism out of Buddhism in order to become truly free
  • Understand the importance of questioning the authority of gurus and teachers who others may urge you to place on a pedestal — allowing you to authentically implement the teachings and  reclaim your own unique path of awakening
  • Explore what it means to be an “enlightenmentist” and trust your own inner compass
  • Hear the example of Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightened disciple, Vimalakirti, from his ancient text in which he deconstructs everyone and everything in order to reveal the infinite blissful glow of the true Reality
  • See why enlightenment is actually a process of becoming a realist who is more in touch with everyday realities as opposed to seeking to escape them

If you’ve found yourself engaged in self-serious, over-stressful spiritual practice, you’ll find this special event deeply liberating. And quite fun.

So don’t miss this opportunity to find out more about Buddhism AND be freed from Buddhism at the same time!

>> You can RSVP for free here <<

During Discovering Revolutionary Enlightenment, Robert Thurman will show you how to liberate yourself from fixed ideas of what Buddhism is so that your revolutionary spirit can lead the way on your unique path of realization.

Happy as You Want to Be ♫ Join Aug. 8-10 True Happiness event

Almost everyone have heard the hit single ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’ by Bobby McFerrin. The song has a very catchy way of conveying its message of being happy to everyone. Bobby Mcferiin’s simple message surely made a lot of people by telling them not to worry.

Living a happy, resilient and optimistic life is wonderful, and is also good for your health. Being happy actually protects you from the stresses of life. Stress is linked to top causes of death such as heart disease, cancer and stroke.

One of the better things ever said is – “The only thing in life that will always remain the same is change”, and in our life we have the power to make the necessary changes if we want to. Even if we find ourselves in an unbearable situation we can always find solace in the knowledge that it too would change.

Selective, interests focused social networks or relationships are essential to happiness. People are different, accept people for who or what they are, avoid clashes, constant arguments, and let go of all kinds of resentments. If arguments seem unavoidable still try and make an effort to understand the situation and you might just get along with well with

Happiness is actually found in everyone, increasing it is a way to make a life more wonderful and also more healthy.

To be happy is relatively easy, just decide to be a happy person. Abraham Lincoln observed that most people for most of the time can choose how happy or stressed, how relaxed or troubled, how bright or dull their outlook to be. The choice is simple really, choose to be happy.

There are several ways by which you can do this.

Being grateful is a great attitude. We have so much to be thankful for. Thank the taxi driver for bringing you home safely, thank the cook for a wonderful dinner and thank the guy who cleans your windows. Also thank the mailman for bringing you your mails, thank the policeman for making your place safe and thank God for being alive.

News is stressful. Get less of it. Some people just can’t start their day without their daily dose of news. Try and think about it, 99% of the news we hear or read is bad news. Starting the day with bad news does not seem to be a sensible thing to do.

Source of True Happiness A spiritual connection is also recommended. Being part of a spiritual practice group with its singing, sacraments, chanting, prayers and meditations foster inner peace.

Manage your time. Time is invaluable and too important to waste. Time management can be viewed as a list of rules that involves scheduling, setting goals, planning, creating lists of things to do and prioritizing. These are the core basics of time management that should be understood to develop an efficient personal time management skill. These basic skills can be fine tuned further to include the finer points of each skill that can give you that extra reserve to make the results you desire.

Laugh and laugh heartily everyday. Heard a good joke? Tell your friends or family about it. As they also say -‘Laughter is the best medicine’.

Express your feelings, affections, friendship and passion to people around you. They will most likely reciprocate your actions. Try not to keep pent up anger of frustrations, this is bad for your health. Instead find ways of expressing them in a way that will not cause more injury or hurt to anyone.

Working hard brings tremendous personal satisfaction. It gives a feeling of being competent in finishing our tasks. Accomplishments are necessary for all of us, they give us a sense of value. Work on things that you feel worthy of your time.

Learning is a joyful exercise. Try and learn something new everyday. Learning also makes us expand and broaden our horizons. And could also give us more opportunities in the future.

Run, jog, walk and do other things that your body was made for. Feel alive.

Avoid exposure to negative elements like loud noises, toxins and hazardous places.

These are the few simple things you can do everyday to be happy.

And always remember the quote from Abraham Lincoln, he says that, “Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
