Path to Peace: Annual Lam Rim Retreat with Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim and Ven Chokyi Our annual lam-rim retreat has been running at Chenrezig Institute since 1974 and benefited many thousands of people looking to understand and integrate the teachings of the Buddha into their everyday life. This year our Lam Rim will be divided into two phases of teaching. In the first phase Geshela will teach extensively on the Four Noble Truths, the Buddha's first and most essential teaching. These fundamental teachings are a perfect place to start for new students and an important place to return to for more experienced ones. In the second phase of teachings Geshela will teach from a rare Lam Rim Commentary “The Blissful Path to Omniscience, the Red Guide to the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment” composed by Lobsang Chokyi Gyaltsen and recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. These inspiring teachings will challenge more experienced students to assess how they are applying the teachings in their lives. Complimenting these teachings will be a program of yoga, meditation, discussion and sacred art experience. You’ll experience daily life in our thriving Buddhist community, and discover the relevance and freshness of traditional Buddhist teachings to your own life. The lam-rim has been greatly appreciated many thousands of people as an excellent means for clarifying their direction in life, no matter their religion or philosophy. Join us at the start of the New Year for this wonderful retreat, and discover ways to transform your own life. All welcome! Tuesday 2 January 6:30 pm - Sunday 14 January, 1.30 pm. Facility fee $500. Accommodation and meals available separately for purchase. They are discounted by 10% for those attending the full retreat. Geshe Tsultrim is immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presents the Dharma and inspires our community. Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim was born in Tibet in 1969. At 14 he became a monk at Sera Je Monastery in India, where he was awarded his Geshe degree (the equivalent of a doctorate in Buddhist studies) in 2005. He spent a further two years studying tantra at Gyume Tantric Monastery. He began teaching at Chenrezig Institute in 2014 after being chosen for our community by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.
Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.
