Our introductory series is for anyone interested in understanding Buddhist approaches to a happier and more peaceful life, and how to use meditation to achieve this way of being.
The teacher, Pam Martin, is a long time student of our Spiritual Founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden. The course is based on Geshe-la’s extraordinary text, Meditations on the Path to Enlightenment.
We’ll look at the fundamentals of Buddhist philosophy and psychology, and explore Buddhist views including the nature of mind, karma, impermanence, love and compassion, and enlightenment.
The series is a relaxed way to explore Buddhist approaches to leading contented lives, and the practical steps for developing positive states of mind. We’ll learn about practising love and compassion as a path to happiness, and how to feel peaceful in this challenging world.
Each class will include guided meditation instruction to enhance our relaxation, clarity and happiness. There will be plenty of time for questions at the end of each session.
The classes are held in our beautiful peaceful Tibetan temple from 1.30 to 3pm for seven Sundays from 2 February to 22 March. There will be a break on the weekend of 29 February and 1 March for our beautiful New Year Meditation Festival.
Everyone is welcome to come along to any class in the series. There is a choice of chairs and floor cushions for your comfort.
Class is followed by afternoon tea, where we’ll enjoy chatting over a cuppa with like-minded people.
The facility charge is $10, with proceeds supporting maintenance of the temple and gardens.
The Tibetan Buddhist Society’s Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre is located just 45 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, at 20 Cookes Road, Yuroke. For more information please call (03) 9333 1770
