MORE GLIMPSES OF THE AUSTRALIAN FESTIVAL

In the previous post about Australia we saw highlights of the first two days of the Australian Festival. In this post we include photos and a description of days 3 and 4.

But most especially we include a brief excerpt of an extraordinary teaching by Gen-la Jampa.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Here is a brief account of days 3 and 4 in the words of those who attended.

‘Each day began with engaging guided meditations introducing us to the practice of Buddha Manjushri led by Gen Lhachog.

‘This was followed by extraordinarily clear and skilful teachings from Gen-la Jampa. Gen-la explained the practice of Tantra, especially emphasising overcoming ordinary appearances and conceptions, in such an accessible and encouraging way that even those who are completely new would feel inspired and encouraged.

‘We all came away believing that enlightenment is definitely possible through this very blessed and special method.

‘During the break on day 4, many festival goers enjoyed a hike uphill to a local lookout and a barbecue lunch.'
