Venerable Geshe Doga

FAMILY DAY TEACHING & PICNIC
Sunday 1st December 10:30 am
Nurturing good relationships

Geshe Doga has been a source of excellent help and comfort to so many families over the years.  There are many stories of the most difficult problems being overcome by following Geshe-la’s advice, particularly in relation to difficulties with children. Geshe Doga has always emphasised the importance of nurturing love within our families, no matter how big or small and on this day to acknowledge his care and rejoice in his kindness, we celebrate our families together with Geshe Doga.

 

Geshe-la will teach for about an hour and a half on how to nurture respect, patience, love and compassion. Afterwards, you are invited to join the picnic in Landcox Park across the road. Dharma Club will be joining us after Geshe Doga’s teaching.

 

Please bring some lunch to share, a blanket to sit on, hats and sunscreen. For more information, phone Katrina 9596 8900.
