Venerable Geshe Doga

PUJAS at Sera Monastery

Tara Institute requested several pujas to be done in Sera monastery for the good health and long life of Geshe Doga and our teachers. The offering of bread and tea and one hundred rupees for every monk was done on behalf of all the Tara Institute community. Due to the lockdowns in India, the pujas have been delayed and the first puja at Sera May has just been completed on the day of Lhabab Duchen. The Sera Jey community puja is imminent. The offering to all 4500 monks and the prayers accomplished is something to be rejoiced.

The Swift Path

by Panchen Lobsang Yeshe

RECOMMENCING Wednesdays 8pm

from February 9th 2022

The Swift Path by Panchen Losang Yeshe is a Lam Rim text and is a step-by-step guide on the path to Enlightenment. It is a concise and very practical presentation of the various points from renunciation and the altruistic aspiration (bodhicitta) up to the development of concentration and insight. The text is a practical meditation guide and it explains in detail what to do in a meditation practice on the points of the path and what to do in between sessions. It also addresses the pitfalls that can occur and gives advice on the different experiences meditators may have.

Dear Friends,

Due to the current outbreak of Covid19 it is not safe for our January program to go ahead as planned. The risk of transmission of the virus to our attendees, volunteers and teachers is too high at the moment.

The program for January is cancelled and the plan for us is to resume in person teachings in February instead, beginning with teachings from Allys Andrews on Monday February 7th. Followed by teachings with Venerable Geshe Lobsang on Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th February.

If you wish to visit the centre or have an inquiry about the program please get in touch with Amelia at spc@tarainstitute.org.au or call 0421 829 693.

Please stay safe during this time.

Kindest regards,

Amelia
