EASTER RETREAT WEEKEND : Cultivating the Great Compassion of Arya Chenrezig

29 March @ 6:30 pm - 1 April @ 2:30 pm AEST

$1.00

PLEASE NOTE: GESHELA WILL NOW BE AWAY DURING THIS EASTER WEEKEND. WE ARE DELIGHTED THAT VENERABLE TONY BEAUMONT WILL NOW LEAD THIS BEAUTIFUL AND PEACEFUL FOUR-DAY RETREAT!

ABOUT EVENT:

At the suggestion of Geshe Tsultrim this retreat was originally to be based around a Great Chenrezig Guru Yoga practice composed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. With Geshela now unavailable to lead the retreat we’ll reschedule this profound subject and practice at a later date.

Honouring this original intent of cultivating great compassion, Venerable Tony Beaumont will now lead the Easter Retreat using the Great Chenrezig Practice from the Mani Retreat integrated with the great text “The Eight Verses of Thought Transformation” by Geshe Langri Tangpa.  

As Easter is a time when, in our Western Christian tradition, we remember the loving compassion and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, we hope that this retreat can provide a bridge between the two traditions and help us recognise the universal relevance of great compassion.

Ven Tony Beaumont will lead regular sessions of this moving practice with recitations of the Chenrezig Mantra (OM MANI PADME HUM) throughout the weekend as well as offering commentary, explanation and the opportunity for Q&A.

All are welcome to attend – no initiation is necessary and Ven Tony will always support newer students and answer their questions.

Ven Tony will use prayers and practices from the attached Prayer Book which you may download here:2020_fpmt_retreat_prayer_book_a5

About our teacher and retreat leader

Ven Tony first made contact with the Buddha-dharma in Nepal and India in 1976. Following this, he trained and worked as a psychiatric nurse, and then in the 1980s was based at Chenrezig Institute during which time he served at different times as the cook, office worker, and gardener.

Following ordination as a monk in 1991, he lived at various FPMT centres including for eight years at Nalanda Monastery in France and nine at Thubten Shedrup Ling Monastery in Bendigo where he was director for four of those. Venerable Tony was also director of IMI for three and a half years. He has led retreats and courses at FPMT centres throughout the world, as well as teaching in prisons and schools. Venerable Tony is now back living at Chenrezig Institute and we are very grateful that he is leading this retreat.
