Shakyamuni Buddha gave 84,000 teachings, and the enormity of them can be overwhelming! These few short verses, the Three Principle Aspects of the Path, composed by Lama Tsong Khapa, are a beautiful and succinct guide to achieving happiness, drawing directly on the Buddha's teachings.
Distilling the vast principles of renunciation, correct view and Bodhicitta the verses present an essential approach to help us to view reality, self and others in a truly honest way.
Lama Yeshe says 'This is a small text, but it contains the essence of the entire teaching of Lord Buddha. Also, while it is very simple and practical, it is a universal teaching that everybody can understand.'
Join us for this mind-opening weekend and discover for yourself the essence of Buddha's teaching in the Three Principles of the Path.
Saturday 21st April 9.00 am - Sunday 22nd April 3.30 pm, held in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute.

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.
