Kopan Down-Under Lam Rim Retreat
January 3 @ 6:30PM – January 16 @ 12:00PM Brisbane
The Kopan Down-Under Retreat in 2022 will be based on Lama Tsongkhapa’s two texts Songs of Experience, and The Foundation of All Good Qualities, both widely used for condensed Lamrim meditation and considered some of the most important texts of the Gelug Tradition of Buddhism.
The Lamrim teachings, based on the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, form a complete and gradual spiritual path leading to enlightenment. Through cultivating an awareness of our present situation, we gain an understanding of the nature of our dissatisfaction and unhappiness, the causes for these states of mind and how we can overcome them. The Lamrim teachings give us the tools to deal more effectively with any situation, be it positive or negative.
Our resident Tibetan Geshe, Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim, will teach this course, assisted by Venerable Kartson (interpreter and tutor) and other sangha members (Ven Tony and Ven Gonpo). The course consists of twice daily teachings from Geshe Tsultrim, daily tutorials and discussion groups, daily meditations and a meditation retreat weekend on the 8th and 9th Jan.
