Lama Rigzin trained as a Tibetan monk for almost 25 years under the guidance of many great Lamas. He speaks fluent English and is currently working as a translator in Sydney. Lama Rigzin has been teaching Buddhism in Australia for over five years.
His earthy lifestyle and happiness in sharing the precious and timely teachings of the Buddha makes his talks enjoyable and very pragmatic.
Friday 7th July – Public Talk on “The Power of Forgiveness”
Learning to forgive is a profound spiritual practice. The grudges we hold poison our heart and keep us in a state of suffering, forgiveness is the road to peace.
“The weak can never forgive
Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong”
Place: Armidale Community Buddhist Centre (next door to the Mandarin restaurant, white door, upstairs)
There will be a light supper provided after the talk.
