The Five powers are a recipe for squeezing the Buddha’s teachings into our already overcrowded lives. If we’re struggling to find time for meditation or study, these simple but profound tools will provide us with a structure and motivation so that we can make our lives happy and meaningful, even when doing the dishes.

“When you practice the five powers, every single thing you do is only for numberless sentient beings and therefore, everything you do only becomes the cause for achieving the peerless happiness of full enlightenment. This is the greatest profit that can be achieved with this life and so this practice is the most beneficial one for achieving peerless happiness.

It means that every single action you do, whether it is meditation and prayers or doing your job, becomes the cause of happiness for all sentient beings…This means that you will have the best, happiest life now and also the best, happiest life in the future—like the sun shining in this world and eliminating all darkness.” - Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Throughout this weekend course Geshela’s extensive knowledge will be complemented by Ven. Chokyi’s down to earth approach to practice, a powerful combination to support you in your development. Meals and accommodation are available separately.

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 see the Chenrezig Institute Calendar for updated information. Also below the far carpark is our ‘Wellbeing Centre’ which provides courses focusing on cultivating physical, emotional and mental balance and wellbeing. They include authentic traditional and modern psychological approaches to health and lifestyle. They are suitable for everyone who maybe looking for genuine happiness and well-being in a non-religious framework.
