Composed by the great Indian yogi Dharmarakshita more than a thousand years ago, this text is among the most esteemed of the so-called mind training teachings. Mind training is all about employing techniques for transforming suffering into happiness. Geshela will guide us verse by verse through Dharmarakshita's classic, explaining the workings of karma, the benefits of altruism, and the means to cut through our true enemies: self-grasping and self-cherishing.

Starting in March 2019 Thursdays, 6:30pm to 8:00pm, held in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute. These classes are offered by donation to the community. Please offer whatever you can to support the flourishing of the Dharma. Serious study for fun loving students!

These classes are an excellent way to get to know Geshela’s warm and encouraging teaching style and make connections with your fellow students. The classes include everyday examples and discussions to make learning meaningful. Questions and debate are encouraged and students support each other with peer to peer learning.

Discussions are often revisited over supper or chai and cake in the café before class. Many students find this a great way to integrate the teachings into their busy lives. You can book supper online or in reception before 10am.

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 Chenrezig Institute calendar for updated information.
