EXPLORING BUDDHISM – (VI Sydney)
New Exploring Buddhism Series with Wai Cheong Kok at Vajrayana Institute, Sydney
Our Exploring Buddhism Program aims to provide a balance between study and practice, and between the growing understanding of the theory and the deepening of personal experience of the Buddha’s teachings.
Over six modules we explore the important Buddhist philosophical topics related to the mind, the practice of meditation, the different presentation of truths, the structure of the Buddhist path, the training and transformation of our mind and thoughts, and the supporting practices of prayers and the special ngondro (preliminary practices) that are conditions for generating spiritual realisations. Special attention will be given to relate these concepts to our daily experiences to facilitate the integration of the Buddha’s teaching to help us find genuine joy and peace in our life.
Our weekly classes are supplemented by monthly half-day practice workshops to create the conditions for integrating the intellectual knowledge with meditative practice to ensure the study of Buddhism is grounded in practical application.
March 16 @ 8:00AM – 5:00PM UTC+10
The study and practice of Buddhist philosophy in a way that is highly relevant to our daily life depends entirely on a skilled teacher to bring it to life. Vajrayana Institute has the privilege of having a uniquely qualified Teacher who is capable of doing just that.
Wai Cheong Kok is from Singapore. He has been teaching meditation and Buddhism since 1996, with a special interest in making available the benefits of meditation to a wider audience.
From 2006-2015 and starting from 2020, he has served as a senior teacher at Vajrayana Institute, a Tibetan Buddhist Centre affiliated to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).
After studying Dharma for several years, Wai Cheong set out to deepen his understanding of spiritual practice by completing the first 7-year Masters program in Advanced Buddhist Studies of Sutra and Tantra at Istituto Lama Tsong Khapa in Italy from 1998-2004. This was followed by a four month solitary retreat in New Zealand.
