Through the practice of patience we can gradually lessen our destructive, compulsive habits and begin to live in more positive and beneficial ways. Ksanti, which is translated as ‘patience’ and ‘tolerance’, is the Buddhist art of being able to maintain a positive approach when things go wrong.
It gives us the opportunity to choose beneficial reactions that are not driven by our usual compulsive mental habits of greed, pride, anger and jealousy. It is one of the most essential skills we can learn to help us lead a happier, more trouble-free life.
Sunday 8 May 9 am - 4.30 pm, in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute.

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.
