Shechen Karuna.

Postby muni » Tue Jun 22, 2010 8:46 pm

Since 2001 Karuna-Shechen has initiated more than 30 humanitarian projects, providing vital services to underprivileged communities in Nepal, Tibet, and India. To maintain those projects and develop new initiatives we need your help.

One example.
A hospice occupies a wing of Shechen Clinic where the elderly and terminally ill are taken care of in a compassionate and loving atmosphere. Our palliative care involves a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Patients are made as comfortable and pain-free as possible and families are invited to participate in the caring process. It is a special place of sharing between the staff and the patients and their families. The staff is there to listen and to provide physical, psychological, social and spiritual relief. We try our best to allow our patients to die with dignity. This is possible thanks to our multidisciplinary team and our deep concern for them.

‘View like the sky’ means that nothing is held onto in any way whatsoever. You are not stuck anywhere at all. In other words, there is no discrimination as to what to accept and what to reject; no line is drawn separating one thing from another. ‘Conduct as fine as barley flour’ means that there is good and evil, and one needs to differentiate between the two. Give up negative deeds; practice the Dharma. In your behaviour, in your conduct, it is necessary to accept and reject.” Guru Rinpoche
