Transcending Attachment – the Buddhist Path to Freedom with Ven Kartson – DAY ONE of TWO DAYS

30/09/2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm AEST

$60.00 – $120.00

 About Event:

We are very happy to welcome a dear and respected friend, Venerable Kartson, back to Chenrezig Institute to offer two days of teachings across September and October. 

Ven. Kartsön will use the short verse “Parting from the Four Attachments” (by Kunga Nyingpo Tsechen) as a basis for exploring what it means to be Buddhist, discussing some points of reflection that help evaluate one’s spiritual practice. The day will include teaching, discussion and meditation on these topics.

“If you are attached to this life, you are not a [true] dharma practitioner.

If you are attached to Samsara, you are not determined to emerge from it.

If you are attached to your own interest, you do not have Bodhicitta.

If grasping occurs,  you do not have the philosophical view.”

We are offering this course over two Saturdays: 30th September and 7th October. People are encouraged to attend both days for the best experience, but those who are unable to do so are welcome to attend only one. It can be attended in person in our gompa, online through the Zoom link and also at any chosen time on our YouTube channel.

About Teacher:

Venerable Kartsön (Yaki Platt) was born in Tel Aviv and previously trained and worked as a software engineer, mostly with the Israeli Defence Forces. Having met the Dharma in the mid 90s, he then moved to India in 2001 and studied conversational and classical Tibetan for four years.

Ven Kartson came to Chenrezig Institute in Australia as a translator in 2005 and continued to work first with Geshe Jamyang and later Geshe Tsultrim, as well as leading the Basic Program tutorials, and giving teaching both at Chenrezig Institute and online for centres in Israel and US.

He was ordained as a monk in 2014, is a graduate of the FPMT Basic Program and a qualified FPMT teacher. He is very popular amongst hundreds of students everywhere – for his clear and precise knowledge, and also the humility and humour he exhibits.

Ven Kartson left Chenrezig Institute in early 2023 and has been travelling, taking teachings, translating for renowned teachers, and teaching to his dharma friends in Israel since then. He now returns to Australia to help care for Khensur Rinpoche, Geshe Tashi Tsering and we are very fortunate that he has agreed to teach at Chenrezig while he is here.

The schedule for the two days will be posted closer to the time but we can say that each days runs from 9.00am to 4.00pm.
