FPMT in Australia is delighted to announce Geshe Tenzin Zopa’s ‘Cultivating Kindness’ tour of Australian FPMT centres in June and July.

Below are the tour dates and the links to centres. Geshela will be offering a range of teachings and workshops, relevant to both buddhist and non-buddhists alike, on topics such as mind-training, cultivating loving-kindness and cutting through ego, calm abiding meditation, the power of holy objects, and workshops on Chenrezig and Guru Rinpoche.

Geshela’s unique blend of humility, warmth and kindness provide inspiration to all who attend his teachings. He teaches us that just like the beautiful lotus flower, which blossoms from the mud, the greatest love and positivity can be born of fearfulness and negativities. Geshela is a highly-qualified lineage holder and this is a rare opportunity to connect to the unbroken transmissions of teachings and meditation practices dating back centuries.

Geshela will be visiting the following centres:
