Nightly Readings: 8-9 pm AEST - The Life of Shabkar

Every evening except Guru Rinpoche and Dakini days

About this work, Matthieu Ricard writes in his introduction,
“The autobiography of Lama Shabkar, a work known and loved throughout Tibet, is probably second only to that of Jetsun Milarepa in popularity. It is a simple and moving account of the life of a wandering hermit from childhood until his ultimate spiritual realization.”

Sundays 5:30-6.30PM AEST: Living is Dying

March 20th to November 27th.

“Shouldn’t we all try to contemplate the inevitability of our own death at least once this lifetime? Particularly as every one of us will die – itself a crucially important piece of information. Doesn’t putting some effort into processing the inescapable fact of our own death make sense?” Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

An invitation to explore through Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche’s book Living is Dying how an awareness of death benefits not only at the time of dying but also in our day to day living.

Jakob Leschly and a team of speakers involved in the fields of death and dying will lead panel discussions and guided meditations and offer presentation of the practical application of Buddhist practices before and after death.

Wednesdays 9:00-10:00 am AEST: Sword of Wisdom

Mipham’s Sword of Wisdom – The Nyingma Approach to Valid Cognition

*Currently on hold until September 2022

The Buddhist teaching on valid cognition, pramana, welcomes critical thinking as essential to gaining genuine and deep faith in the Dharma. The Sword of Wisdom is a profound yet clear introduction to understanding, and experientially integrating, a valid knowledge of relative and ultimate reality on the Mahayana and Vajrayana paths.

“The great scholar and advanced spiritual master Jamgon Mipham’s Sword of Wisdom is a classic work that explicates valid cognition. I am happy to see it now available in English with commentary and scholarly appendices that will be very helpful for serious students in understanding this profound and important text.” His Holiness the Sakya Trichen

Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche (1846-1912) was an exceptional master who greatly influenced the modern study of the Sutra and Mantra teachings in both the Nyingma and Kagyü schools of Tibetan Buddhism. A student of Jamgön Kongtrul, Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo, and Patrul Rinpoche, Mipham Rinpoche was blessed by Manjushri at an early age and swiftly came to master all branches of Buddhist and secular learning. Like the Omniscient Longchenpa, his writings are said to have arisen from the expanse of wisdom and offer a clear vision of the united intent of all the Buddha’s teachings.
