Gen Rabten recently gave a series of public talks in Adelaide..
A small group has also started in a town outside Adelaide
Back in Melbourne, Gen Rabten gave a series of public talks in the city
This month we hosted our first open day
Wangden explained the shrine to people and led a number of meditations during the day
The garage sale raised lots of money… and helped clean out our garage!
A vegetarian take on the traditional Ozzie Sausage Sizzle was very popular
… as were our delicious cakes
The kids enjoyed listening to Buddha’s stories
as well as playing dress ups,
having their faces painted,
playing with the balloon animals,
and just enjoying the day
The hoola hoops were popular with children…
.. and adults alike!
The local fire brigade brought the truck for the kids ! to climb on
And many people left with information about our courses
The following weekend Gen Rabten taught ‘A Truth in Every Moment’
We all listened keenly to this valuable advice about developing humility
And between sessions, we enjoyed each others company in the beautiful sunshine
We were delighted to welcome an unexpected tour bus into our beautiful temple
And meanwhile, back in the bathrooms, Phil’s still working away… nearly there!
