Enlightenment - Summer Festival Review & Retreat | 24-28 Aug
Fri 24 Aug - Tue 28 Aug


Location
Monbulk: Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia
25 McCarthy Rd


In our spiritually degenerate world the concept of enlightenment has become lost and people are becoming less interested in spiritual development. Despite our external search for happiness becoming more desperate, it can never deliver us real, lasting happiness: this can only be found within the blissful mind of enlightenment. Although such a goal may seem unrealistic, utilizing a special presentation of Buddha’s teachings known as ‘Kadam Lamrim’ enlightenment can be attained quickly and easily.

On this weekend course Gen Kelsang Drolkyi will relay the teachings on Kadam Lamrim given at the NKT International Summer Festival in the UK. By allowing these teachings to touch our heart we will gain deep insights into the nature of our existence, develop a wish to free our self and others from a life of suffering, understand the truth of reality and ignite our potential to achieve the state of full enlightenment.

Following the weekend Gen Kelsang Dornying will guide a 2-day Tantric retreat based on the second week of the Summer Festival. Open only to those with Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments, this short retreat will guide us in the blissful meditations that enable us to transform ourself into an enlightened deity.
