Find out what Buddhists believe about life, the universe and everything. This series is designed for those curious to know the Buddhist take on big issues such as existence, reincarnation and karma through the lens of everyday living.

Informed by the book “Approaching the Buddhist Path” by The Dalai Lama and FPMT Teacher Ven Thubten Chodron, this series has a framework that allows students to explore a Buddhist way of life in a fun and informal way. Through discussion, stories and guided meditation students will explore:

What makes Buddhism different to other religions?
How can such an ancient philosophy be relevant today?
How do Buddhists live day to day?
What is the mind?
What about reincarnation?
What did the Buddha say?
Are we all connected?

Bring along your questions, moral dilemmas and curiosity as we find out what makes Buddhists tick. Everyone is welcome to join these open conversations. Courses are held monthly on Sunday’s between 9:30am and 3:00pm.

July Buddhist Beliefs: What is the mind? with Ven. Gyalten Dondrup
Join us for a morning of conversation, questions and meditation as Ven. Dondrup shares key concepts and beliefs that inspire a Buddhist approach to life. Everyone is welcome. In today’s sessions we’ll explore one of Buddhism’s core concepts—the interdependence of all things and investigate what that means at a day to day level for most Buddhists. The session will end with a guided meditation as a way of exploring this concept.

Ven. Gyalten Dondrup is an Australian Buddhist monk who first discovered Buddhism in Nepal in 1998. Since then, he has been involved with Chenrezig Institute and Langri Tangpa Centre. In 2014 he was ordained by H.E. Choden Rinpoche and currently works at Karuna Hospice Service. He is known for his fun and down to earth approach to exploring the Dharma.

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 check the Chenrezig Institute Calendar for updated information. Also below the far carpark is ‘The 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.
