A Skill Worth Developing
The connection of Buddhism with the activity of accompanying people who are suffering brings a new perspective. Developing greater awareness of our reality, clarifying our motivation, and increasing our kindness and discernment—so many keys to successfully being present with ourselves and others.
Being present is a living process that reveals us to ourselves and, in so doing, allows us to connect with others in a new way. This capacity thus has implications in our daily lives and our personal, professional, and circumstantial relationships.
Anila Trinlé, a Buddhist nun, is a lecturer and instructor. Since the mid-1990s, along with Lama Puntso, she has participated in the reflection on and development of a Buddhist approach to the problematics of modern-day society such as accompanying those in grief or at the end of life, ethics, professional life, and education. Furthermore, she is a member of the ethics committee of the Buddhist Union of France and helps coordinate the creation of Buddhist chaplaincies within hospitals.
Her activity is connected to Dhagpo Kagyu Ling, the European seat of the Gyalwa Karmapa, and Dhagpo Bordeaux, a growing urban center in Aquitaine, France.
