Dr. Alexander Berzin visits Finland for the first time in the end of October giving teaching about lorig and a lecture about Buddhism and Islam.
Lorig: The Different Ways of Knowing Something
Saturday, October 31st (10-17) and Sunday, November 1st (10-16)
Alexander Berzin will give us an introduction to the Buddhist theory of knowledge. How do we know anything? We may think we saw something, but maybe we were mistaken. We may figure something out with logic, but was our reasoning correct? Are we sure of our conclusion? Were we only guessing? When we learn to distinguish the different ways in which we know something, we can deal better with the challenges of life and be of more help to others. This is because we will base our strategies and decisions on reliable knowledge.
Venue: Danakosha Dharma Center, Museokatu 17 A, 00100 Helsinki
Price: 80 €/weekend or 40 €/one day (60 €/weekend or 30 €/one day member price and unemployed/students)
We also encourage participants to leave a donation for the teacher.
Teachings are held in English.
Please, register for the teaching at firstname.lastname@example.org for getting additional information!

He spent almost 30 years in India studying with masters from all four Tibetan Buddhist traditions. His main teacher was Tsenzhab Serkong Rinpoche, the late Master Debate Partner and Assistant Tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He served as his interpreter and secretary for nine years, accompanying him on several world tours. He has also served as occasional Dharma interpreter for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Alexander Berzin is a founding member of the Translation Bureau of the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives and devotes much of his time to translating into English Tibetan technical terms that have often been misunderstood.
