On the website of the Meditation Centre for World Peace
in Reykjavik, Iceland.
To get peace in the world you have first to get peace in your heart.
These are the words of our protectors who are two Tibetian brothers living in Scotland and have founded the oldest Tibet Buddish Monestery in Europe: www.samyeling.org
These two brothers are: Akong Tulku Rinpoche and Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche who is the abbot of the monestery. Their line of Buddhism is the Kagye linage from H.H. The Karmapa.
The meditation we teach at the Centre is the same as has been in Tibet for centuries.
A teacher name Rob Nairn comes every year to Iceland to teach meditation and have retreats. The summe of 97 Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche came to Iceland for a visit and to teach.
All work of these men aim to help others, they do not charge anything for their teachings for themselves.
In the Meditation Centre for World Peace we teach meditation for beginners on a 10 weeks course and other courses for those who already practice meditation. Different talks to lift the human spirit are advertised on this page and in the papers. In the summer of 2008 we had our first long retreat in Skalholt with Rob Nairn.
On Wednesdays at 20:00 we have meditation open and free of charge for everyone. We moved to present location in 2007 but before that located at a private home.
We are preparing to have teachings in English on regular basis. That will be advertised here on the webpage. All the teachings of Rob Nairn are in English so are his retreats. Further information is given in the program.
