Dharma For Dementia

I have attended Buddhist Meditation classes spasmodically over the last few years but this has fallen by the wayside recently.  My interest in Buddhism continues to grow as I like it’s methodical approach to ending the suffering of samsara .  On most days I meditate for a while and I find videos by Dekyong particularly helpful.

 

 

Universal Compassion:

Towards the end of 2015 Yendrik my teacher from the Buddhist Meditation Classes in Grimsby popped round to see us.  We chatted for a while in the comfort of the dining room while Maureen slept in the lounge.

Jendrik suggested reading Universal Compassion by Geshe Kelsand Gyatso.  He advised me to ‘study one page a day’. Six months later (June 2016) I’m finally taking his advice and seeing dementia as an opportunity to give unconditional love.

Geshla as we call him is a very inspiring teacher.  He has the ability to simplify his teachings making them accessible for all.  I would recommend anyone to consider looking at this text.
