      Friday - Sunday    Do We Have a Choice? - Karma and Purification  New!
      by Venerable Rita Riniker
      Friday      7pm
      Saturday:  9.30am - 8.30pm
      Sunday:     9.30am - 12.30pm

      What is karma?  Why is this happening to me and not too others? Why is it that nice people experience a lot of suffering, and horrible people seem to be quite happy? How does karma work, did anybody  create it? What can one do about negative actions that we have already created?
      These and other questions will be addressed to get a better understanding about how karma works, and where our responsibility lies.   Although it is said that only a fully enlightened mind can understand the sublte workings of karma, we can still study the theory and the principles and then apply it to our lives if we find that it all makes sense!

      Venerable Rita who has taught many courses in our Dharma Centres in Tushita Meditation Centre and Root Institute, India, is a very popular teacher and retreat leader.  We are  delighted that, despite her busy teaching schedule in Europe, she is able to spend two weeks with us this year.  Do not miss these series of talks and weekend program with Venerable Rita!

      Dalai Lama Chenresig "Dependence Weekend" Retreat! New!
      With Gen Wangdu
      July 2 - 5
      We will be be practising the "Inseparability of the Spiritual Master and Avalokitshvara: A Source of All Powerful Attainments" with teachings by Gen Wangdu.
      This is a practice written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama when he was 19 years old.  We will be dedicating the retreat to the long life of His Holiness Dalai Lama - whose birthday falls on July 6 - for all his holy wishes to be fulfilled. Join us!

      Geshe Lhundrup Sopa says of this practice:
      "... a special guru yoga practice, in which the deity is visualised not in the usual form of the deity but in the form of one's actual guru.  We Tibetans consider His Holiness the Dalai Lama to be the manifestation of Avalokiteshvara (Chenresig). Therefore it is much easier to see the guru, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as inseparable from the yidam, and to envision Avalokiteshvara in the form of His Holiness the Dalai Lama."

      Venerable Sean is an English monk with knowledge spanning many traditions. Fluent in Tibetan, he has translated for many great masters and translated many rare texts into english.  A close disciple of Kyabje Denma Locho Rinpoche, he is also one of his principal translators.
