When the Buddha first turned the wheel of Dharma and taught the Four Noble Truths he explained that we cycle endlessly in samsara, a world of suffering. Fortunately for us, he also revealed how to break free from this futile cycle and fully develop our mind’s potential. The Four Noble Truths are key to Buddhist philosophy. Through familiarity, we can develop deep understanding of each truth and recognise how significant they are to our everyday lives. Each of the four truths has four aspects, all of which counteract erroneous ideas and help us to better understand reality. This weekend course will touch upon the sixteen aspects of the four truths, with a focus on the first two. Saturday 23 July 9.00 am - Sunday 24 July 3.30 pm held in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute. Facility fee $150. 10% discount for members and concession card holders. Accommodation and meals available separately. Meals must be booked before 10.00 am on the day of the event. All bookings can be made on our website www.chenrezig.com.au. ______________________________________________________________________ Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim was born in Tibet in 1969. At the age of 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 then spent a further two years studying tantra at Gyume Tantric Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim is immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presents the Dharma.
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.
