GEN DORNYING EVENTS IN AUGUST 2018-05-08T13:40:54+00:00

It can feel as though happiness is impossible in this world of ever changing and challenging climates.  Although thousands of years old Buddha’s teachings give us some confidence that happiness is available to us through transforming our minds from negative states to positive states. 

On this day retreat Gen Kelsang Dornying, resident teacher at KMC Australia and KMC Melbourne, will guide us through some beautiful meditations on the Three Principal Aspects of the Path by Je Tsongkhapa that lead us on the path to a peaceful and happy life.

As our lives become more fast-paced and we find ourselves under greater pressure, our worries and fears are increasing while our inner peace is decreasing. Our anxieties can jump from our work to our health, our finances or our reputation, and it may seem that there is no safeguard against this fear. Buddha taught that the real source of fear is our uncontrolled mind – so if we wish to be free from fear, we must learn to control our mind.

At this special talk learn to overcome the inner causes of fear and begin a journey towards mental freedom. Discover simple, creative ways to respond to adversities that naturally give rise to a positive outlook and an inner resilience that cannot be shaken by the challenges that life brings.
