Meditation was developed for more than just stress reduction, it’s main purpose is for human liberation! While the positive effects of meditation on our physical and mental health are well known, what is unique to Buddhist meditation is that it seeks to remove the very cause of stress itself, so that it no longer arises. Our mind remains peaceful, calm and clear, even in the face of adversity.
Everyone is welcome to this introduction evening talk on the Power of Meditation. 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.
The centre opens at 9 am Sunday morning as usual, for the talk at 10.30 am. Join us for tea and coffee in reception beforehand. 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.
