Discovering Buddhism – Refuge in the Three jewels

9 July @ 9:00 am - 10 July @ 3:45 pm AEST

$60.00
Ven Kartson

About Event:

Most of us turn to our families and friends for help and protection when things go wrong. But since our own minds are the source of most of our troubles, there is no way those close to us can really provide a lasting solution to all of our problems.

For this reason, Buddhists rely on a teacher who has achieved a complete understanding of their own mind. We rely on their teachings on the nature of reality and we rely on others who can show us how to use those teachings to work out our own happiness. These are the Three Jewels – the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha.

Understanding refuge is a key aspect of Buddhism, because it is the entrance to the path. Join us for this weekend course to find out more about what it means to take refuge. Learn about the essential practices of refuge and the role of refuge in enhancing our spiritual growth. 

Discovering Buddhism is an ongoing program covering the essential points of Buddhist philosophy. You do not have to have attended previous modules. All welcome.

About Teacher:

Venerable Kartsön (Yaki Platt) was born in Tel Aviv and previously trained and worked as a software engineer, mostly with the Israeli Defence Forces. Having met the Dharma in the mid 90s, he then moved to India in 2001 and studied conversational and classical Tibetan for four years.

Having come to Chenrezig Institute in Australia as a translator in 2005, he is now translating for Geshe Tsultrim, as well as leading the Basic Study Program tutorials.  He is a graduate of the Buddhist Studies Program and was ordained as a monk in 2014.

After registration students will receive a ticket which will include Zoom and YouTube links as well as a link to a dropbox which will contact the subject readings and meditations.
