Our world seems increasingly fractious and hostile, yet in the face of great adversity, human beings rally to support each other with love and understanding. How can we develop the sense of equanimity and emotional stability to remain warm-hearted, despite great social suffering? How to genuinely care for all beings when some beings seem so destructive and negative?
Everyone is welcome to this introduction evening talk. Geshe Zopa is an internationally renowned teacher, fluent in English, and with a contemporary approach full of wisdom and gentle humour. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a full program of public talks, teachings and rituals from a Buddhist master! Ideal for those curious about Buddhism, beginners and in-depth students alike.
Doors open 6 pm for the talk at 7 pm. Join us for tea and coffee in reception before the talk. No need to book, just come along! By donation (suggested $20, but no set amount).
We welcome back Geshe Tenzin Zopa for his second visit this year; his enthusiasm and warmth captured the hearts of all who attended. His humble manner, gentle humour and clear and topical explanations of Buddhist philosophy engaged everyone who attended his teachings. Geshe-la is featured in the 2008 documentary film Unmistaken Child, which follows his successful search for the reincarnation of his beloved master, Geshe Lama Konchog. This charming and emotional film is available on DVD or you can watch it on YouTube.
