Experiments in Meditation: Touching Reality
with TY Alexander
Meditation is not an activity, a technique. It is a way of being, a way that can be present in everything we do ~ Charles Genoud.
Buddhist teachings can explain a lot about Buddhism – its principles, philosophy, tenets and so forth. These teachings are the words of Buddhism but not its essence.
The essence comes from within. We already have an enlightened buddha-consciousness within us waiting to be recognized and unleashed. Lama Yeshe encouraged us to do exactly that when he said, ‘Sometimes the words get in the way.’
TY will play with some words in her weekend program, but they will only be an expression of the Buddha within that helps the meditator “enlighten up”. They will not tell you what to do: you already know that.
This will be a weekend of meditation and discussion, suitable for beginners and experienced meditators. Leave your preconceptions about meditation at home and enjoy exploring your own inner experience in a relaxed and refreshing way.
This event is held in the Well Being Centre – only in person.
Since 1974, T.Y. Alexander has been a student of Lama Thubten Yeshe and Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, as well as many other teachers, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Following her first one-month Kopan retreat, she studied in Nepal and India, during which time she was ordained as a Tibetan Buddhist nun. She remained a nun for 9 years and has lived in Australia since 1985. T.Y. has taught at Chenrezig Institute many times over a long time on subjects as diverse as Introduction to Meditation and Mahamudra and has led various tantric retreats.
