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!
