Spiritual Traditional Centers of Spanish Buddhism
According to Buddhist belief, many spiritually evolved beings appear regularly in the world. These highly realized beings take rebirth selflessly with the definite objective of serving humanity through compassion and generous deeds. In Tibetan culture, these extraordinary beings are known as Tulkus. A fine illustration of some of their activities is recounted here, in the lives of the teachers presented through the Web page of Trikaya Association, holder of the Spiritual Traditional Centers of Spanish Buddhism (C.E.T.B.E.).
In Tibet, the life stories of eminent lamas are frequently told and read with much enthusiasm. It is as if one was receiving initiation from the exalted masters themselves. They are believed to be excellent stimuli for prompting inner awakening and serve as unfailing inspiration for the development of limitless good qualities.
It is hoped that through the reading of these remarkable deeds, one may experience an inexhaustible wealth of peace and happiness, and find encouragement to transverse the various paths and stages leading rapidly to supreme realization.
Experience as such, was said to be immeasurable, inconceivable and inexpressible, except the experience had through the vigorous practice of Bodhiçitta and guru-devotion, which is transmitted only from ear-to-ear, and heart-to-heart!
The book Awakening the Sleeping Buddha, written by His Eminence the XII Tai Situpa Rinpoche, one of the most known teachers of the present Buddhism, is a perfect manual of meditation, either for novels, either for persons with more experience in Buddhism.
In the Awakening the Sleeping Buddha, the author empathize the more practical aspects of Buddhism, expounding the teachings with a common sense not very usual. In fact, this work is a simple and direct approach to the basic and more comprehensible fundaments of the Tibetan Buddhism or Vajrayana, providing to the practitioners already committed and to the general public access to topics such as the enlightenment, the reincarnation or the karma.
