This is the first time in SE Queensland that we’ve had the opportunity to enjoy six months of precious teachings from a Buddhist master! Geshe Zopa is an extremely popular teacher, fluent in English, and with a contemporary approach full of wisdom and gentle humour.
Internationally renowned teacher Geshe Tenzin Zopa presents a program of public talks and one-day courses at Langri Tangpa Buddhist Centre that will engage you throughout 2017. Geshe-la will lead 1-day courses on a range of topics encompassing “A Wise Heart for the Modern World”.
Each event will be a stand-alone topic – so come for just one evening, one day, a few dates that suit – or join in every talk and teaching. Bookings are appreciated but you can also come along on the day. BYO lunch; tea and coffee provided. Entry is by donation (suggested $80 per day but there is no set amount).

About Geshe Tenzin Zopa:
Geshe Tenzin Zopa visited Queensland for the first time last 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 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.
