Special Chainsaw Safety Training Course

Gomde Trust has the responsibility to care for nearly 50 acres of woodland. But if you are going to work in the woods, making firewood or felling small trees, a basic chainsaw course is vital for safety reasons and to make sure you are covered by the any insurance policies. That is why we organised this course through Varis, a local accredited training provider.

Naturally Kind Hearted – The Training of Lojong.

Everyone very much enjoyed the wonderful weekend of teachings and meditation with Khenpo Gyurme Tsultrim in April 2013.

Lojong, is an ancient tradition of training the mind so that compassion arrises naturally in our hearts. Based on the famous 8th century text “The Way of a Bodhisattva” which is one of the great classics of Mahayana Buddhism.

These fears often stop us from reaching out to help people. These teachings give us a way to see the world in a different light, for as Shantideva explains   “All the happinessthere is in this world comes from thinking about others, and all the suffering comes from preoccupation with yourself.”
