Indichix Saturday mar 07 2009

Hello Folks,

At Sunday’s national coalition meeting (**) I met Jose David Cuartas
Correa from Columbia and he agreed to do a talk for LCIN on  “Emergent
Interfaces and Technologies”.

It is tentatively scheduled as :

Venue : Thoughtworks , Airport road , Bangalore.
Date : Saturday 2009mar07
Time :  1400 to 1600 hrs.

I have asked him for further details and talk-time duration but lets
assume that he takes one hour.  Is anyone else interested in talking
in the second hour? No topic restrictions and people are free to
present their areas of interest.

Another point I wanted to discuss was this … time and again I hear
“visit my college and give a talk”. Ideally speaking,

– its better that the college students are asked to attend these public meetups.
– Saturday afternoons should hopefully not clash with college/work.
– open to people of all age groups.
– students get to interact with others from the Linux community.
– students get an opportunity to present talks too.

Secondly, there are no topic restriction and definitely no bar on
newbie stuff. So feel free to talk about your Linux experience and why
you liked it (or even hated it)

Thoughts !!

(**) I blogged about it but I am waiting for Vinay’s final words on
the discussion.

Working with Emotions

Working with Emotions

Geshe Dorjee Damdul, the English translator to His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, is to give a series of talks on emotions at Choe Khor Sum Ling, Bangalore for three days, on February 21-23.

The talks will present a path for working with emotions that is firmly grounded in the Buddhist treatises.

What are emotions? How do they arise? Can we discipline them?  How to cultivate positive emotions like compassion, loving kindness? How to counter destructive emotions like anger, hatred, attachment, willful indifference?

Geshe La, well-versed in the Buddhist philosophy and modern science, will answer these questions in relation to the wisdom seeing the ultimate reality, interdependent nature of ourselves and world around us.

Among the topics to be discussed during these three days are universal compassion, wisdom of emotions and inner health, modern ethics, scientific discoveries, interdependence and spiritual path.

Geshe Dorjee Damdul is a distinguished Buddhist scholar, whose interest lies in the relation between Buddhism and science, especially in physics. Geshe La participated in several conferences on “Buddhism & Science”, Life and Mind Institute meetings, dialogues between His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama and western scientists, incl. the famous dialogue on Emotional Awareness between Paul Ekman and the Dalai Lama which resulted in the book with the same title. Geshe La teaches Buddhist philosophy at the Institute of the Buddhist dialectics in Sarah, near Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh.
