Visit by Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe 16-18 August 2019
“The Weekend of teachings began on the Friday night with a Public Talk on Mindfulness & Compassion from Khenpo-la. Khenpo-la’s great knowledge on these topics was well received by the sangha and visitors to the centre. “During the Saturday and Sunday teachings, attendees experienced the healing and purification practices contained in the Vajrasattva & Medicine Buddha teachings which was attended by 25 students.
“We offer our many thanks to the people who worked towards the success of this time and a special thank you to Khenpo-la for travelling to Rockhampton, Queensland to provide us with these special teachings.” Warmest regards, Geoffrey.
“Prior to the weekend retreat, I had been looking forward to listening to Khenpo Ngawang Damchoe teach due to his excellent reputation as a dharma teacher and am thankful to everyone involved in organising his visit to Rockhampton. I found the teachings we received were as expected concise, but I appreciate the time taken by Khenpo to explain the teachings in a way that was intended to be applied in our day to day lives. We also received good advice on working through the difficulties we are likely to encounter when practicing the meditation techniques and applying them in life off the cushion. The teachings drew a large number of long-time practitioners to the centre as well as a number of people new to the dharma.” I hope to see Khenpo visiting Rockhampton next year. Alex M.
