Join Geshe Tsultrim and Venerable Tony for this fascinating exploration of Buddha Nature and learn how practicing the six perfections invites positive and lasting change into our lives. Ven. Tony will discuss practical ways you can bring generosity, ethics , patience, joyous effort, concentration, and wisdom into your everyday life and further develop these qualities. Each of the Six Perfections supports the other five, but the order of the perfections is significant also.

The first three perfections—generosity, ethics and patience—are virtuous practices for everyone. The remaining three—joyous effort, concentration, and wisdom—are more specifically about spiritual practice. Geshe Phuntsok Tsultrim is immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presents the Dharma and inspires our community. He became a monk at Sera Je Monastery in India, where he was awarded his Geshe degree (the equivalent of a doctorate in Buddhist studies) in 2005. He began teaching at Chenrezig Institute in 2014 after being chosen for our community by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. He teaches in Tibetan with the help of his professional translator, Ven. Kartson.

Ven. Tony trained and worked as a psychiatric nurse before he was ordained in 1991. He teaches around the world, sharing his understanding with gentle compassion. Established 1974, Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The Institute is home to a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, residents, volunteers, retreat goers and guests.

Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in formal garden, espresso in the cafe or a vegetarian meal.

Teachers’ availability subject to change. Please refer to the calendar for updated information.
