Day 8 – Teachings by Gyalwa Karmapa

The third day of Karmapa’s visit started with the board of the international Diamond Way Buddhism Foundation presenting the work and news from the foundation-owned Diamond Way Buddhist centers around the world.

The Enlightened Attitude (Skt. Bodhicitta) was the focus of the teachings Gyalwa Karmapa gave in the afternoon. In order to accumulate merit and wisdom, we seek refuge in the Enlightened state of mind, the Buddha; the path itself, the dharma; and the guides, the bodhisattvas. From that base, we can build or develop something. What we can develop is merit and wisdom, and as we do, we develop understanding. At the same time, our intention is of utmost importance: the intention to truly benefit others!
