How to Transform Your Life • Summer Festival Review • Weekend Course & Retreat • Aug 25-29
Fri 25 Aug - Tue 29 Aug

Monbulk: Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia
25 McCarthy Rd

Following the NKT International Summer Festival in the UK visiting international teacher Gen Kelsang Tonglam will give a transmission of the commentary to the book How to Transform Your Life, a comprehensive revision of the highly acclaimed book Transform Your Life by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

At this event, suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike, each and every stage of the spiritual path will be explained. The result of following this path is that all our problems are eradicated, our mind is pervaded by happiness, and we are able to truly benefit the people we love. We will transform our entire reality simply by transforming our mind – the greatest gift each of us can give our troubled world.

After the course Gen Tonglam will guide us in retreat, giving us a direct experience of the blissful journey outlined in this book. This August, join us at Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia (KMCA) to develop inner strength and total mental freedom.
