【University Lecture on Civility】 The Journey to Joy 2016-09-21

Speaker : Meditation Master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche,

Date: 21st September 2016 (Wednesday)

Time: 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Venue: Beacon, The University Mall, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Language: English


Born in 1975 in the Himalayan border regions between Tibet and Nepal, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a rising star among the new generation of Tibetan Buddhist masters. From a young age, Rinpoche was drawn to a life of contemplation. He spent many years of his childhood in strict retreat. At the age of seventeen, he was invited to be a teacher at his monastery’s three-year retreat center. He also completed the traditional Buddhist training in philosophy and psychology, before founding a monastic college at his home monastery in north India.

In addition to extensive training in the meditative and philosophical traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, Mingyur Rinpoche has also had a lifelong interest in Western science and psychology. He is known for his ability to present his understanding of Tibetan Buddhism using the language of contemporary Western thought. Mingyur Rinpoche has great passion in bringing the practice of meditation to people from all walks of life. He is working with professionals from a wide range of disciplines to adapt his Joy of Living retreats for use in different contexts, including hospitals, schools, prisons, and leadership training.

Mingyur Rinpoche is dubbed “the happiest man in the world" since he participated in a study of brain activity at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002, where scientists found that advanced meditation increases mental happiness. His first book, The Joy of Living: Unlocking the Secret and Science of Happiness, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list and has been translated into over twenty languages.

We look forward to seeing you.

「轉變觀念」,怎樣轉? 難不難? 轉變其實不難,大多時候是我們想不開,或因為把太多無用的念頭抓太緊了。透過學習禪修找回自己、了解自己、回到自己,放鬆、清空內心,摒除雜念,從倉促的生活平復過來,活在當下。當心變得清淨、自在,雜念減少,轉變自然而至。

在學校的群體裡面,每個人都擁有自己獨特的價值觀、家庭背景和追求。不過,一個友善的 校園,卻是老師、家長和學生心中共同的願望。 現實生活中,學校無法避免學生之間大大小小的衝突,小則導致言語及肢體上的暴力行為,大則形成校園內的欺凌文化,令人擔憂之餘,卻似乎未有妥善的方法有效 處理此問題。而面對各種已造成的傷害,更有可能對學生的心理成長構成負面影響。寬恕,是人人皆知的生命選擇,然而,也是極困難的決定。 是次講座,我們特別邀請在台灣從事生命教育研究及課程發展十多年的吳庶深教授,以個人的真實經驗,分享他對「寬恕」的深度反思,一同探究「寬恕」所帶來的 生命意義和價值,以至教師如何在教學環境中與學生進行對話,發現幸福的可能。
