A WEEKEND OF BUDDHIST WISDOM & INSIGHTS

PUBLIC TALKS

COMPASSIONATE LIVING (Friday 25 May ~ 7pm)

Life has many challenging times but if one remains conscious and rational, there isn’t anything that cannot be remedied with a compassionate outlook. One should know all experience comes from relevant causes. When one is conscious of people in pain and suffering, even the most difficult problems can be an important turning point if one learns to practise, and knows how to practise compassion. Through tender, loving and caring attitude, all can be very rewarding to help others with kindness and good heart.

 

IMPORTANCE OF SUICIDE PREVENTION (Saturday 26 May ~ 7pm)

Australia has more people killing themselves due to depression, anger, anxiety and guilt than through gun violence. We may have strict gun laws, but people do not know how to control their thoughts and deeds. We need to learn ways to practice safe thoughts and speech to stop all forms of violence including suicide. Suicide prevention from the Buddhist perspective is the practice self-kindness.

 

BUDDHIST TEACHINGS

EMPOWERMENT OF WHITE TARA PRACTICE (Saturday 26 May ~ 9am to 5pm)

Lama Choedak Rinpoche will also give teaching on, and empowerment of White Tara Practice. White Tara is a meditational female deity this practice offers the opportunity to expand and clarify understanding of your own mind and the nature of life itself. Tara is a Sanskrit word which means, “she who rescues”. As a mother to all children sentient beings, she is inspired to rescue us all from fearful situation in life, and the fear of death.

 

DHAMMAPADA: WHAT THE BUDDHA TAUGHT (Sunday 27 May ~ 9am to 5pm)

Dhammapada is a collection of teachings of the Buddha. It is rather like the Buddhist Bible. It is translated and written in gold as they contain many precious teachings. Dhammapada is the truth that people of all walks of life and all times who have revered its great wisdom and knowledge. Tibetans learnt Sanskrit language to understand what the Buddha taught. With many short stories, the Buddha teaches how to live a kind, contended and wise life without going into extremes. He challenges people to think and reason and encourages people to be able to think for themselves. Lama Choedak Rinpoche will teach directly from the sacred words of the Buddha.

Lama will also give Teachings and empowerment on the practice of Healing Medicine Buddha. Lama Choedak is  Tibetan born and has been teaching in Australia for 30 years.

Lama Choedak Rinpoche

Lama Choedak Rinpoche is the most prominent Tibetan Buddhist Lama living and teaching in Australia for the last 28 years.

He has just returned from one month of translation of Lamdre teachings by HH Sakya Trizin in Malaysia, attended by 600 people from 24 countries.

Healing Medicine Buddha Empowerment

Sickness is a common suffering of all living beings. However, according to Tibetan medicine, most illnesses are psychosomatic. Ill health that is generated by one’s unwholesome attitude cannot be cured by conventional medicine alone. This will help you understand how certain mind states can contribute to ill health, and to learn how to apply the appropriate antidotes. Discover the connection between thoughts, behaviour and speech, and the positive and negative effects they have on your health.

Lama Choedak Rinpoche will give the empowerment of the Healing Medicine Buddha and impart the transmission of the healing mantra passed down through an unbroken lineage since the time of the Buddha.

This will provide a complete training in practical as well as theoretical session on how to do the Healing Buddha’s meditation. You will also learn how to use it to assist friends and relatives who may be ill or dying. This profound meditation technique will compliment any form of medical treatment. This practice can reduce the side effects and increase the effectiveness of any medication. It is especially recommended for health professionals and those who are interested in learning self-healing.

THREE DAYS OF MEDITATION WITH A TIBETAN LAMA

Meditation is an amazing practice of how to be present, to know, to see and change at will with the application of an immense power to love and live with kindness and wisdom.

This technique goes back some 2600 years of ancient wisdom and enlightenment.  Come and learn to meditate with a Tibetan Lama for a day.
