Join the Dalai Lama for the June long weekend public teachings!
His holiness will visit several states on his tour downunder the first stop being Melbourne, where he will present from Saturday 11th through Monday 13th June at the Melbourne Convention Centre then at venues around the nation throughout the month.
Over the course of the weekend, the Dalai Lama will explore six perfections that provide the basis for a way of life – generosity, ethics, patience, enthusiasm, concentration and wisdom.
The Teachings will afford those attending to be in the presence of His Holiness and receive these invaluable teachings directly from him.
The teachings are based on the text by Shantideva ‘A Guide to the Bodhisattva Way of Life’. His Holiness the Dalai Lama considers these teachings a seminal influence in his life and work and repeatedly stresses the benefits of its study but one does not have to be a Buddhist to benefit from the teachings.
His Holiness says ” You and I may hold different beliefs – about the universe, about reality, about religion. And even within a belief, within a faith tradition, for instance, there are all sorts of differences between people. But such differences in belief, just like differences in experience, are minor compared to our common humanity.”
This is a rare opportunity globally for His Holiness to be offering these Teachings accessible to all, over 2½ days.
