Public Talk GESHE TENZIN ZOPA Buddhism and Resilience
Friday, 1 February 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Buddhist teachings on thought transformation have much to offer our conflicted world. Instead of fighting against the tide of challenge and change, we can learn to transform every situation, even difficult ones, into an opportunity for inner growth, clear understanding, and human compassion.
Everyone is welcome to this introduction evening talk on Buddhism and Resilience. 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).
This is the third and much anticipated visit from Geshe Tenzin Zopa; 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 Tenzin Zopa 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.
