Course background information
Classes generally are held in our beautiful peaceful Tibetan temple from 1.30 to 3pm. At present they are online due to COVID. Everyone is welcome. Classes are followed by afternoon tea.
The Tibetan teacher and founder of the Tibetan Buddhist Society, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, brought these teachings to Australia after a lifetime of study and practice. Geshe Loden passed away in 2011, but his legacy lives on through the program of teachings and the wonderful facilities at the Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre in Yuroke or online via the Tibetan Buddhist Society YouTube channel. Classes are based on his 2 introductory books Essence of the Path to Enlightenment and Meditations on the Path to Enlightenment.
Each class will incorporate a talk, guided meditation and question and answer session. The facility charge is $10, with proceeds to support maintenance of the temple and gardens. You can pay by following the link below.
