Public Talk and Workshop
30 November - 1 December 2018
It was a wonderful blessing for us that Khenpo la came to Canberra to teach new and old students.
Through his infinite knowledge and generosity, Khenpo's public talk on “The Benefits of Meditation” covered the entire Lam Dre!
Then the Saturday workshop on “Parting From the Four Attachments” was full of tender and practical guidance to help us in our quest to tame and transform these minds of ours.
I never cease to marvel that Khenpo speaks in ways so relevant to my life. Likening the ego to Santa Claus (as children we all believe in Santa, but he doesn't exist) was a very helpful and relevant pith instruction.
Just being in Khenpo's presence is a teaching. It makes me want to try and turn away from samsara: not just say this. To be a tiny bit more like him.
After the teachings we visited the Old Parliament House Rose Gardens and a "stupa" at the Australian National Gallery called "Skyspace" by the American artist James Turrell. More about reality and illusion this time in sculpture.
It seems that a Canberra visit by Khenpo la may become an annual event. That would be truly wonderful!
Thank you, Ann, for bringing Khenpo up to Canberra in your car. None of these teachings could happen without a team effort.
