In Tibetan language we rejoice about the good heart of the person who gave us a gift – “thuk-je-che” can be translated as “you have a big heart”. It is composed of a term for greatness (che), a honorific term for addressing a person (je), and a honorific term for (exalted) mind or heart (thuk), which together denotes a good heart, karuṇā, compassion, benevolence, kindness, responsiveness merciful with grace.
Many donations from all over the world make it possible to construct a`Stupa for World Peace` here in Berlin. So far we`ve achieved the filling and consecration of the `inner core` of the stupa. Much more work is still needed to build the bell-shaped `outer wall`, put up the 13 rings, the rectangular harmika and the copper-jewel. We hope to raise enough money to finish the project in 2017.
Conquer the angry man by love.
Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.
