Event Details

A thousand years ago, a humble Tibetan monk, Geshe Chekhawa, summarised the Tibetan Buddhist guidelines for living a compassionate life into seven key points, known as the Seven Points of Mind training. For generations, his pithy slogans have laid the way for students to nurture their own compassionate nature and put it into action in everyday life.

In a world where acts of unkindness, large and small, can leave us in despair and feeling powerless these teachings offer a vital practical antidote.

Cultivating Compassion will present teachings on the Seven Points recently given by Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche accompanied by reflections from Traleg Rinpoche.

Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche is one of the outstanding meditation teachers of our time. She is known for her penetrating wisdom and humour, conveying the Buddhist teachings in a concise and lively manner, enriched with personal anecdotes, which are of particular relevance to the everyday life of the modern, fast-paced world.

From the early 1980s onwards, Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche was a pioneer in bringing Tibetan Buddhism to Australia and a strong advocate of non-sectarianism. He taught extensively on many aspects of Buddhist psychology and philosophy, comparative religion, and Buddhist and Western thought.

This program is open to all, but does assume some familiarity with meditation and the Buddhist understanding of interdependence.
