You are welcome to join us for an introduction into Buddhist meditation with Diamond Way Teacher Klaus Neukirchen.
“Meditation is mind’s gift to itself.” - Lama Ole Nydahl
To start a meditation, we first calm and focus the mind. To do this we usually concentrate on the breath or on an object. We then use this focussed attention to develop insight. The ultimate aim of Buddhist meditation is insight into the nature of mind – enlightenment.
Meditating on the Buddha, or on the Buddha-like qualities of one’s liberated or enlightened Buddhist teacher, accomplishes both of these. The outer form attracts and holds our attention. And with the insight that our own nature is enlightened like the Buddha’s, we can make fast progress.
Klaus Neukirchen was born in 1958, has been an active Buddhist practitioner and Lama Ole’s student since 1980. During many years of teaching, his journeys have led him across Europe and Russia, as well as to North and South America. Professionally, he takes care of seniors and trains nurses for the elderly. Together with his wife, he lives in the proximity of the Munich Diamond Way Center, which is the focus point in their daily lives.
