During its three years of existence in Prague, the Tibet Open House has served to connect east and west via language classes, Buddhist teachings, exhibitions, and other events.

Due to the current movement restriction put in place by the Czech government, the culture space has had to postpone a number of its courses and events, many of them devoted to bringing Tibetan culture history, tradition, art, philosophy and religion to the Czech capital.

This week the organization has announced that it will continue its efforts online by offering mindfulness and meditation with the Residential Lama of Open Tibet House, Geshe Yeshi Gawa.

Born in eastern Tibet, Geshe Yeshi Gawa studied in the Loseling monastery in southern India and later in Dharamsala. From Monday, March 23 (6 pm) he will be offering online courses in meditation and mantra recitation. 

The sessions are intended for the general public, not just Buddhist practitioners, according to the Tibet Open House website. “Geshela has chosen the topics very sensitively and up to date. We hope those will help you and your loved ones.”

The classes are free and in English and will take place over Zoom daily through March 26. The Tibet Open House was established by the Linhart foundation and personally blessed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2016. From tomorrow, two daily sessions will take place at 10 am and 6 pm.

According to the invitation, the “Green Tara mantra will be recited as part of one online course, as recommended by His Holiness the Dalai Lama for the current days.”

A spokesperson for the organization said that it may continue with the classes but will wait and see the outcome of the current quarantine situation in the Czech Republic.
