Creating an environment for Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche to teach in Australia.
Friday 30th March to Saturday 12th May, 2018
You are invited to attend this 6 week retreat with Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche,
focusing on Rinpoche’s teaching on Shantideva’s “A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life“,
with the optional tantric empowerments of Chakrasamvara and Rinjung Gyatsa.
This is Rinpoche’s third extended teaching in Australia, having commenced in 2011.
“Hearing the teachings benefits your own mind and later, because having heard it, you will be able to benefit others.”
“Try to eliminate the negative attitudes, which bring suffering, and increase the positive attitudes, which bring happiness”.
Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Inspiration to Attend
For new and older students alike, this retreat will be an excellent and rare opportunity to spend time with Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche in a focused way. As a result you will be inspired and re-inspired. You will gain a real taste of the variety and depth of Dharma practices that Rinpoche makes available to us.
Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche is a unique teacher in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
He is well known for his relentless compassionate approach to teaching the Dharma, rarely teaching in a linear fashion according to a text, but rather teaching according to what is most karmically beneficial for his audience. It is our belief that Rinpoche’s offer to give a commentary on Shantideva’s “A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life”, which had a tremendous impact on how Buddhism was subsequently understood and practised in Tibet, is an indication of how transformative this teaching event will be for the way Buddhism is practised and understood in our time.
