DKR Singapore Teaching May 9th-10th: Is The World, As We See It, Real?
Published on 19 April 2015
Is The World, As We See It, Real?
- 9 - 10 May 2015
Rinpoche will be giving a series of three talks on this topic. The gap between what we perceive and what is real has long concerned philosophers, scientists, meditators, and all who question the meaning of life. The way we usually see and think about life events, relationships and possessions arises from subtle misconceptions and misunderstandings that generate tremendous problems and suffering. Seeing the root of our ignorance clearly empowers us to break free from painful habits and to taste true freedom.

VARA: A Blessing
There will be a special screening of Vara: A Blessing, on May 8, along with a Q&A session with the director Khyentse Norbu after the screening.
Vara: A Blessing (Bhutan, 2013) is the award-winning third feature film by Bhutanese director and writer, Khyentse Norbu. Norbu’s previous films are The Cup (1999) and Travellers & Magicians (2003). Vara is Norbu’s first English-language feature film.
Vara is a celebration of classical Indian music and dance. It tells a timeless tale of devotion and is set within the lush backdrop of rural India. The film stars Shahana Goswami and Devesh Ranjan and is based loosely on Bengali author,Sunil Gangopadhyay’s short story, Rakta Aar Kanna (Blood and Tears).
Vara was the opening film of the prestigious Busan International Film Festival in 2013 and has gone on to screen at many international film festivals, including BFI London Film Festival, Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival, Beijing International Fil Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival, where it won the Best Online Feature Film in Tribeca’s Online Competition.
This screening is jointly organized by Elsie Sim, Tara Melwani and Lee Kwang Boon in support of 84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha (84000.co), a global non-profit initiative to translate the words of the Buddha and make them available to everyone.
