Wed
Lho Ontul Rinpoche Teaching on Bowen @ Rivendell Retreat Centre
Jul 3 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Ontul Rinpoche talk July 3

A few Buddhist-inspired and practicing Bowen Islanders have invited quite a revered Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Ontul Rinpoche, to visit the island to offer an afternoon of open talks. We are excited to announce that he has accepted the invitation and now invite whoever might be interested to mark their calendars for this special event.

THE TOPIC: Bodhicitta—The enlightenment mind. Many great texts and teachers have said that the heartfelt wish and activity to both liberate one’s self and all other beings is essential for Awakening. Bodhicitta is the search and discovery of primordial wakefulness of our minds and the relative compassion or great love to relieve the causes of suffering of all living beings.

Lho Ontul Rinpoche Teaching on Bowen @ Rivendell Retreat Centre
Jul 3 @ 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Ontul Rinpoche talk July 3

A few Buddhist-inspired and practicing Bowen Islanders have invited quite a revered Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Ontul Rinpoche, to visit the island to offer an afternoon of open talks. We are excited to announce that he has accepted the invitation and now invite whoever might be interested to mark their calendars for this special event.

THE TOPIC: Bodhicitta—The enlightenment mind. Many great texts and teachers have said that the heartfelt wish and activity to both liberate one’s self and all other beings is essential for Awakening. Bodhicitta is the search and discovery of primordial wakefulness of our minds and the relative compassion or great love to relieve the causes of suffering of all living beings.
