Our New Residential Teacher – Venerable Thubten Chökyi

After 49 colourful years working in theatre and academia, Venerable Thubten Chökyi became a Buddhist nun so she could devote the rest of her life to the service of others.

Read about Venerable Chökyi and why she became a nun in her own words which appeared on the SBS Website on 31 January 2017.

Official biography extracted from Chenrezig Institute website

Venerable Chökyi’s Teaching Schedule (so far…there’s more to come)

  • Sundays 21, 28 Nov and 5, 12 Dec and 9, 16 Jan 11:30am-1pm Mind and Its Potential
    Examine the mind and how it creates happiness and suffering. Learn to transform destructive thoughts and attitudes to create a positive and joyous mind! This series will conclude with a “retreat” on 22 Jan (details of the retreat will be provided as they become availalble).
  • Fridays 26 Nov and 3, 10 Dec 10.30am – 12pm Three Principles of the Path
    Tsongkhapa explains that renunciation, bodhichitta and a correct view of emptiness are the three pathways of mind essential for reaching enlightenment. Renunciation is based on the attitude with which we turn our minds completely away from all wishes for uncontrollably recurring existence (samsara). Bodhichitta is the attitude to attain enlightenment to benefit all sentient beings. The correct view of voidness is realisation of the actual abiding nature of reality. View Recordings
