Pure Happiness • Weekend Course & Retreat | weekend course 1 - 3 Nov, silent retreat 3-8 Nov
Fri 1 Nov - Fri 8 Nov


Location
Monbulk: Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia
25 McCarthy Rd


Although our pursuit of happiness is becoming more and more fast-paced and sophisticated, it is also increasingly giving rise to anxious and uncomfortable feelings and blocking our experience of real happiness. By engaging in the powerful and ancient meditations on taking away suffering and giving happiness, we can reverse this situation and create genuine inner peace and contentment.

On this course Australia and New Zealand’s most senior teacher, Gen Kelsang Rabten, will explain these magical meditations and how to engage in them. This special weekend will open the door to the deep happiness that comes from improving our human nature. We will develop a strong and stable mind, cultivate the power to truly benefit others and experience for ourself the pure enjoyment that comes from a pure mind. Everybody is welcome.

After Gen Rabten’s inspiring teachings, Gen Dornying will guide us in silent retreat. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to focus deeply on the life changing practices of taking and giving.
