Why did the Buddha teach? What did the Buddha have to say that had never been said before?

In this Introduction to Buddhism talk, Ben Isbel will guide students to start looking at some of the unique hallmarks of Buddha's teachings - the Four Seals, the Four Noble Truths, the Two Truths - and see how all of these teachings lead to a single goal, like a hundred rivers that pass under a single bridge. That goal is the elimination of suffering.

Ben has been involved in the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism for over 25 years and is a former student of the BP programme at Chenrezig Institute. His experience spans both Theravadin and Mahayana Buddhist traditions and he has previously taught at Tashi Khangmar Samdrup Ling, Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tserings's Brisbane based School of Buddhist Science.

After completing a B. of Psychology (Hons), Ben went on to complete a PhD in the neuroscience of mindfulness, where he developed a contemporary psychological model of mindfulness practice derived from Buddhist sources. He is a practical and engaging teacher, combining the scientific approach with his own practice and clear understanding.

Held in the gompa only, not online.

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.

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.
