Sundays 10.00 - 11.30 am
Sunday teachings come from the "The Way of the Boddhisattva", written by Shantideva. These teachings are a great starting point for those new to Buddhism. Teachings contain alternative ways to look at our everyday experiences of suffering, impatience, anger, and attachment. Geshe-la often offers practical alternative ways to view these states, and some weeks he will offer meditational techniques.
Read one of Geshe-la's teachings to get a feel for what these classes are like.
Tuesdays 7.00 - 8.30 pm
Teachings from the "Lam Rim". These teachings are important for those who wish to follow the Tibetan Buddhist pathway. Teachings follow the famous texts of Tsongkapa. For more information on these teachings, please email us.
Thursdays 7.00 - 8.30 pm
The Centre now offers meditation sessions on Thursday evenings. Concentration, patience and loving kindness are essential elements of Buddhist practice and can be enhanced through meditation. Geshela teaches several different practices and leads a weekly group meditation.
The word puja means "to please" and has the connotation to please through offerings and practice.
Once a month, going by the Tibetan calendar, both a Medicine and a Guru Puja practice occurs. Please go to the Events calendar for 2015 puja dates.
The Guru Puja lays the whole path to enlightenment on our mindstream, connects us more strongly to our teachers, and allows us to accumulate skies of merit and purifies eons of negative karma.
This is an important practice for all those who have taken initiations.
