Meditation practice awakens our trust that the wisdom and compassion that we need are already within us. The Buddhist Association of the Goulburn Valley invite you to a free Buddhist Meditation at the Senior Citizens Centre, Shepparton, on Saturday, 3 February.
Meditation practice awakens our trust that the wisdom and compassion that we need are already within us. It helps us to know ourselves: our rough parts and our smooth parts, our passion, aggression, ignorance and wisdom. The reason that people harm other people, the reason that the planet is polluted and people and animals are not doing so well – these days – is that individuals don’t know or trust or love themselves enough. Meditation helps us to know and love the full gamut of our bodily – and mindful – existence.
This session is conducted by Venerable Dr Buddhrakkita; all are invited to join and participate and experience the benefits of meditation.
Venerable Dr Buddharakkhita, born in 1970 in Ireland, is a Buddhist teacher with more than 7 years of monkhood in the Theravada Forest Tradition. A self-interest in meditation began at 12, developed while studying a BSc and PhD in Science at University College Dublin and a Diploma in Buddhism at ITBMU Yangon. He has spent almost 20 years working and practicing in Asia and Australia. He has practiced extensively in lay life as well as a full-time yogi prior to first robing in 2006. He completed 5 years monastic training under Ajahn Brahm and has practiced many years under numerous Asian masters.
Venerable Dr Buddharakkhita will use timeless meditation from the Buddhist tradition to guide participants to connecting and engaging their heart with daily life. Participants will be guided in loving kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, gratitude and many other topics so they can broaden and build their experience in these beautiful qualities of the heart.
