Ciò che manca nel “libro bianco” sull’istruzione in Tibet
Mag 22nd, 2019 by admin

Il palazzo del Potala a Lhasa, residenza ufficiale di Sua Santità il Dalai Lama fino al 1959, quando dovette fuggire dal Tibet.

In marzo, in occasione del 60° anniversario dell’Insurrezione nazionale tibetana, il governo cinese ha pubblicato il cosiddetto “libro bianco”, ossia un documento autocelebrativo dal titolo La riforma democratica del Tibet sessant’anni dopo. Nel documento il governo confronta le condizioni socio-economiche e politiche del Tibet indipendente con l’attuale situazione sotto il proprio dominio coloniale.

I “libri bianchi” pubblicati dal PCC mirano a richiamare l’attenzione internazionale sui “lavori per lo sviluppo” imposti dal governo in Tibet. Nessun Paese al mondo si comporta come la Cina il cui governo chiede alla comunità internazionale di approvare la propria versione di sviluppo del Tibet. Perché Pechino si vanta continuamente dello sviluppo del Tibet se davvero lo considera una parte integrante del proprio territorio come una qualsiasi altra regione del Paese? Ciò implica chiaramente l’insicurezza del governo circa la legittimità del controllo politico che esercita sul Tibet agli occhi del mondo. L’ultimo “libro bianco” appunto sul Tibet affronta molte questioni che mirano ostinatamente a legittimare l’occupazione della regione e la successiva oppressione che ha avuto luogo negli ultimi 60 anni.

Meditazione e yoga riducono le emozioni negative
Mag 20th, 2019 by admin

La pratica della meditazione e dello yoga aiuta a far fronte allo stress ed è associata a un volume inferiore dell’amigdala destra (evidenziata nell’immagine), legata all’aggressività.

La pratica della meditazione e dello yoga è collegata a un volume ridotto nella regione del cervello legata alle emozioni negative

Meditation and yoga practice is associated with smaller right amygdala volume, a brain region involved in emotional processing, according to research published in Brain Imaging and Behavior

The findings could indicate “that meditation and yoga practitioners have become more aware of their stress, but are at the same time more able to deal with it hence the smaller amygdala volume,”

La pratica della meditazione e dello yoga è associata a un volume più piccolo dell’amigdala destra, una regione del cervello coinvolta nell’elaborazione emotiva, secondo una ricerca pubblicata su Brain Imaging and Behaviour. Read the rest of this entry »

Lo yoga mindfulness migliora ansia e depressione nei pazienti con Parkinson
Mag 20th, 2019 by admin

La Mindfulness Yoga nel Parkinson è un opzione efficace di trattamento per gestire lo stress e i sintomi e dovrebbe integrare i programmi di riabilitazione, anche se servono studi sul suo effetto a lungo termine.

Lo yoga mindfulness migliora ansia e depressione nei pazienti con Parkinson

New research provides evidence that mindfulness yoga is an effective treatment option for patients with Parkinson disease. The study, published in JAMA Neurology, found that yoga practice improved motor dysfunction and mobility while also reducing anxiety and depressive symptoms.

  • Un programma di 8 settimane di yoga mindfulness per il morbo di Parkinson PD (MY-PD) è superiore ai convenzionali esercizi di stretching e resistenza (SRTE) nel migliorare in modo statisticamente e clinicamente significativo l’ansia e la depressione nei pazienti con PD lieve o moderato.

  • Entrambe le pratiche migliorano i sintomi motori e la mobilità, ma il MY-PD porta benefici al benessere spirituale in termini di difficoltà e calma percepite e alla qualità della vita correlata alla salute.

May 12, 2019. Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, India – Before His Holiness the Dalai Lama reached the Main Temple this morning, the ‘Heart Sutra’ was recited three times in the languages of the Buddhist Republics of the Russian Federation, Kalmykia, Buryatia and Tuva. Once he had arrived, greeted the eminent Lamas and the audience and taken his seat on the throne, the ‘Heart Sutra’ was chanted once more in Russian. “So to conclude this series of teachings, today we’ll conduct a ceremony for generating the awakening mind of bodhichitta,” His Holiness announced. “As far as the awakening mind is concerned we need to understand that we are seeking to attain a state in which all defilements and faults have been eliminated and in which perfect realization—omniscience—has been achieved. Unsurpassed enlightenment is the goal you seek when you generate the awakening mind. You aspire to become a Buddha for the benefit of all sentient beings.

11 maggio 2019. Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, India. Dopo la recitazione del “Sutra del cuore” in russo, a cui hanno partecipato centinaia di praticanti presenti nel Tsuglagkhang e al suo esterno, Sua Santità il Dalai Lama ha aperto la sua copia del “Tre aspetti principali del sentiero” di Jé Tsongkhapa http://www.sangye.it/altro/?p=942. Ha spiegato che il testo fu composto successivamente alle tre versioni – estesa, media e concisa – degli “Stadi del sentiero verso l’Illuminazione”, in risposta alla richiesta di Tsako Wönpo Ngawang Drakpa, discepolo e capo del popolo di Gyalmorong, nel Tibet orientale. In una nota introduttiva, Tsongkhapa esortava Ngawang Drakpa a praticare bene l’insegnamento che gli stava mandando assicurandogli che, qualora avesse praticato bene, sarebbe stato il primo a cui avrebbe dato insegnamenti una volta raggiunta l’illuminazione, manifestandosi come uno dei mille Buddha di questo eone fortunato.

I “Tre Aspetti Principali del Sentiero” http://www.sangye.it/altro/?p=489 a cui si riferisce questa breve serie di strofe, sono la determinazione ad essere liberi, la mente del risveglio di bodhicitta e la comprensione della saggezza della vacuità. Read the rest of this entry »

May 11, 2019. Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, India – Following a recitation of the ‘Heart Sutra’ in Russian, which the hundreds of Russians in and around the Tsuglagkhang joined in, His Holiness the Dalai Lama opened his copy of Jé Tsongkhapa’s ‘Three Principal Aspects of the Path’. He explained that it was composed after Tsongkhapa had written the Great, Medium and Concise ‘Stages of the Path to Enlightenment’ treatises. He wrote it in response to a request from Tsako Wönpo Ngawang Drakpa, a close disciple and leader of the people of Gyalmorong in Eastern Tibet.

In an accompanying note Tsongkhapa urged Ngawang Drakpa to practise well the teaching he was sending him. He assured him that should he do so, when he, Tsongkhapa, manifests enlightenment as one of the 1000 Buddhas of this fortunate aeon, he will share the nectar of his teaching first with him.

The Three Principal Aspects of the Path http://www.sangye.it/altro/?p=481 that this short set of verses refers to are the determination to be free, the awakening mind of bodhicitta and the wisdom understanding emptiness. Read the rest of this entry »

May 6, 2019. Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala, India – When His Holiness the Dalai Lama met with business leaders and professionals, 35 from India, 45 from Vietnam and 18 from Russia this morning he told them: “The purpose of our life as individual human beings is to serve others as much as we can. I dedicate the actions of my body, speech and mind to the welfare of others every day. That’s the meaning of Dharma and reflects the longstanding Indian traditions of ahimsa and karuna. I’ve studied in the ancient Indian tradition since childhood, which has meant memorizing classic texts, receiving word by word explanations of them and using logic and reason in debate to scrutinize what I learned. I strongly recommend using ancient Indian logic. As a student of the Nalanda tradition I’ve found it really helpful for maintaining peace of mind.”

Having invited questions from the audience, His Holiness told a businessman that although shrewd judgement might sometimes lead to success, simply being honest is more reliable because it attracts other people’s trust. Read the rest of this entry »

May 5, 2019. Thekchen Chöling, Dharamsala – In the cool, clear morning air, as the sun rose over the mountains into a cloudless blue sky, His Holiness the Dalai Lama walked from his residence to the Kalachakra Temple early today. Smiling faces, many of them from Russia, greeted him as walked through the garden. He saluted the statue of the Buddha in the main temple before entering the Kalachakra Temple and taking his seat. The Secretary of Namgyal Monastery welcomed everyone to the start of the First Conference on Kalachakra for Scholars of all Tibetan Traditions. Monks of the Monastery sitting in orderly rows chanted verses in praise of the Buddha followed by the Praise to the 17 Masters of Nalanda. Tea and sweet rice were served.

“How many scholars have come from elsewhere?” His Holiness wanted to know. The answer was twenty.

I’ve been quite unwell,” he said. “I came back from Delhi on 8th April feeling fit, but on 9th I was out of sorts, so I returned to Delhi for treatment. It turned out that my illness was not so bad, but I found the treatment tiresome. Now I’m well again, but I need to rest and relax. My staff keep telling me I need to reduce my schedule, so generally I’ll only meet people every other day.” Read the rest of this entry »
