Centre Closure during Coronavirus

All of you will have been reading the advice from government about dealing with COVID-19/ Coronavirus. We have now shut the centre in line with this advice: this includes all meditations, teachings, visiting the centre during the day, and all yoga programs.

It’s going to be a difficult period for us all; we are working on having “online” teachings and to have a “social media” option open to everyone so we can help with any issues arising through this as best we can. People are going to be in self isolation and the Buddhist teachings have a lot to offer in helping people through this period.

I’m currently in self isolation having just come back into the country so this is slowing down my ability to assist in some of these tasks.

The most important message we want to send is that we want to be providing the best help to members and society as we can. We are working on building an online presence. We will be responding to emails to welcome@haygriva.org.au and doing our best to answer messages left on the phone. It will take a few days to give you more details of what we’ve worked out.

Please remember kindness and compassion as everyone we meet will be struggling with how to best handle these challenges thrown up before us.

All the best;

John Waite, Director

H.E. Ling Rinpoche’s Visit Postponed

We’ve received the following message:

Dear Friends in Australia

I hope this email finds you all in the very best of health.

I am writing with an update about H.E. Ling Rinpoche’s Australian tour, in light of the World Health Organisation’s recent declaration that COVID-19 is now classified as a pandemic. The Australian P.M. Mr. Scott Morrison has also recently advised against mass gatherings

Due to the escalating global emergency and out of His Eminence’s concern for everyone’s safety, we have decided to postpone indefinitely his Australian teaching tour to a later date.

When the situation is contained, we will do our best to re-schedule the tour. We deeply apologise for the inconvenience for all of you who have invested time and resources in putting this tour together.

Please stay safe and take care of your health.

Best wishes

Tenzin Khentse (Tseten)
