Death, Rebirth & Karma - Day Course in Wamberal
Khedrubje Centre • Sat 28th May • 9.30am-4pm • $50/40 conc

We are alive, therefore we will die. This is the simplest, most obvious truth of our existence and yet we rarely consider it. More often than not we choose to ignore it.
During this course with Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Dawa, learn the Buddhist view of life, death and everything in between. Through these teachings we can begin to understand why we experience our present fortunes and misfortunes, and how we can create happiness both now and for the future.

The day includes morning and afternoon tea, and a delicious vegetarian lunch. To book click here. Join our Facebook event.

Mandala Retreat - Creating World Peace
Khedrubje Centre • Mon 16th - Fri 20th May • By Donation

This 5-day, drop-in retreat is an opportunity to practise offering mandalas. In this practice, we imagine a pure and peaceful world beyond suffering and offer it to others to create special causes for such a world to arise. The retreat is also a special method for making a connection with a Spiritual Guide and receiving their blessings.

Each session consists of prayers and silence for offering mandalas and meditation. You are welcome to stay throughout the day, just make sure to BYO vegetarian lunch.
If you are new to this practice you can arrive 15 minutes before any session starts and a retreat assistant will show you what to do, answering any questions. It is helpful to let us know beforehand if you are coming (call us on 4385 2609). Visit our website for more info.
