Dalai Lama :: Milano 27-28 June

His Holiness The XIV Dalai Lama has accepted the invitation to come here to Milan and give teachings on the 27th and 28th of June. The morning and afternoon of the 27th His Holiness will give teachings on The Three Principal Aspects Of The Path by Lama Tzong Khapa. The morning of the 28th he will give the initiation of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion, and in the afternoon he will be hold a public conference. I managed to get tickets to the morning session of the 28th: the Avalokiteshvara initiation, the Buddha of Compassion.
28 June 2012 (9.30/11.30)
Initiation of Avalokiteshvara, The Buddha of Compassion
Avalokitesvara is the manifestation of the universal compassion of Buddha: he appears with this particular aspect of one thousand arms to symbolize his ability to benefit all beings.  Receiving this initiation from a qualified master like His Holiness means to receive a transmission of positive energy that will permit one to create the causes to obtain the same qualities of the Divinity.

His Holiness will confer this initiation based on his great personal knowledge and after a specific preparation. It will be carried out, especially for this day, on the base of special propitiatory rites. This ceremony is open to everyone and will definitely permit one to receive great benefit and an authentic blessing of great compassion, loving kindness and non-violence.

Here are some professional photo’s from the event i attended (i was sitting way too far to get any good ones):
This is pretty much the view from where i was sitting!

About ctyoga

Christiane has been practicing yoga for over 10 years. Her yogic journey began in 2000 as a student of Swami Nirmal (now at the Satyananda Centre in London) at the Fitness First gym in Kensal Rise, London. She experienced various teachers in different Fitness Firsts in Central London and around Clapham Junction before changing gyms and meeting Alexa Kho at LA FItness in Piccadilly Circus, London. Christiane attended Alexa's Anusara classes as well as her workshops. In January 2011 she enrolls in a 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training course with Rebecca Ffrench at YogaLondon. Vinyasa Flow is a modern form of yoga that comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and follows Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She quickly become passionate of this discipline and wants to deepen her knowledge; this brings her to meet and attend many workshops with Stewart Gilchrist, Shiva Rea, John Scott, Danny Paradise...all very famous teachers around the world. Being in the presence of such teachers is a significant experience for Christiane, in terms of her yogic journey, personal transformation and growth as well as understanding of yoga. After 11years in London, she moves to Milan to deepen and continue her journey. In Milan she teaches privately (1:1 and group classes) as well as in various yoga and dance centers. Milan is where her love for Ashtanga Vinyasa deepens and grows, bringing her to attend workshops with Lino Miele, Sharath Jois and most recently Kino MacGregor...all original students of Guruji, Sri K Pattabhi Jois. All of this culminates with a long awaited and long overdue trip to India, the birthplace of Yoga. Here Christiane deepens her practice and knowledge of Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga by doing a 200hr Ashtanga Vinyasa TTC with Yogi Kamal Singh at Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishikesh India. After the monthlong course, her travels take her around India practicing with various other world renown teachers, namely with Sri V. Sheshadri in Mysore and with Rolf and Marci Naujokat in Goa. In 2013 Christiane decides to embark on yet another yoga adventure, this time in Aerial Yoga! The course was divided into two weekends: level I in April and level II in June, after which she becomes a qualified Aerial Yoga teacher.
