Screen Shot 2017-08-30 at 11.26.28 PMGen-la Kelsang Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of the New Kadampa Tradition, returns to Australia this year to grant the blessing empowerment of Je Tsongkhapa and give teachings on the Oral Instructions of Mahamudra. This is a unique opportunity to receive teachings on Mahamudra, the heart practice of Kadampa Buddhism, based on the book ‘The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra, the Very Essence of Buddha’s Teachings of Sutra and Tantra’ by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Mahamudra is a special sequence of Highest Yoga Tantra meditation practices that leads to the accomplishment of the union of great bliss and emptiness and eventually to the union of Buddhahood, or full enlightenment. As Venerable Geshe-la says in his book: ‘Eventually, through practising Mahamudra meditation we will be able to benefit each and every living being every day. There is no greater meaning than this’. We are extremely fortunate to receive these teachings from Gen-la Dekyong, who has received the oral transmission of this practice directly from the lineage holder, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Join us for a unique spiritual holiday that will leave you feeling peaceful, inspired and refreshed for the new year. Don’t miss this perfect opportunity to invigorate your spiritual life.
