You were part of the 730 people registered and were one of the small screens that varied from 350 to 485 people present simultaneously. As Venerable Robina mentioned, if 1% of the teachings were benefetial for you, the event will have been a success.
Your presence made the difference and allowed Venerable Robina to be very happy with this event for Brazil. Thus, we created more causes and conditions for her to come to Brazil as soon as possible.
The recordings are available to you until July 31st. After this period, the material will be edited and made available in other formats.
We are also very grateful for your generosity in making your contribution and to all supporters and volunteers.
We continue together.

Thursday, June 25: The Path of Compassion
One session: from 8 pm to 10 pm (Brazilian time – UTC – 3)
Just like you, all beings want to be happy and don’t want to suffer. At this moment, most people live life cherishing themselves, the “I”, more than others. We ignore other’s suffering as long as we are happy.
When we recognize that all beings are equal in both the wish for happiness and the right to obtain it, we automatically feel empathy and connection with them. By getting used to this sense of universal altruism, we can develop a feeling of responsibility for others: the wish to help them to actively overcome their problems.
Thus, with this attitude, all daily activities can be seen as a valuable opportunity on the path to transform our thoughts and behaviors and to exercise compassion and help others.
Ven. Robina will guide us along this path so that we can understand that just thinking how good compassion is not enough, but we must develop a serious commitment based on reason.
Weekend – June 27 and 28: Emptiness and the Enlightened Mind
Saturday and Sunday, two sessions: from 11.30am to 1.30pm and from 2.30pm to 4.30pm (Brazilian time – UTC – 3)
Buddhist philosophy is vast and profound. Yet, if we only remain at an intellectual level, our mind will not be transformed and it will never touch our hearts.
If we don’t go beyond the intellectual level, our mind will not be transformed and it will never touch our heart unless we meditate on a correct view of reality in terms of the inherent nature of all phenomena: emptiness.
Emptiness is the correct view of reality in terms of the inherent nature of “I” and of everything there is.
Ven. Robina will inspire us to go beyond the habit of a limited sense of “I” and will lead us to taste the unlimited expansiveness and insubstantiality of our mind, of our being. To eradicate this deceived view, we need to acknowledge emptiness, non-duality, and, therefore, by our consciousness, we can experience the universal, the infinity.
