Senior Tibetan Lama tells the people of Melbourne to Stop Worrying

By  |  0 Comments

A top Tibetan Buddhist lama says the people of Melbourne would be much happier if they could stop needlessly worrying.

His Eminence, the 7th Dzogchen Rinpoche says if Melbourne folk spend so much time fretting about their families, health and business then they lack the clarity to solve those very same problems.

Dzogchen Rinpoche will be in Melbourne on Friday the 6th of September at Armagh House(226 Kooyong Rd, Toorak) to give a public talk on the subject of How to Stop Worrying – Doors open at 7pm.

His Eminence says: “Worrying about our concerns, particularly at the last minute, without understanding their true causes and conditions or thinking about the consequences of our actions, leaves us confused and unsure what to do.

“Instead we should use our inner wisdom to plan ahead for these issues so we can face them with confidence and then there is no need to panic.

“It’s more helpful to have wisdom worry; this kind is better for us because we can avoid all sorts of obstacles and problems.

“But normal worry often comes too late and that is very unhealthy for us, people don’t see the consequences until later on – this we must try to avoid”.

In this public talk, Dzogchen Rinpoche will explain how to recognise in advance the difference between the conditions that create suffering and those that generate peace so that we can experience joy and be free from worry.

The talk will be followed by a weekend teaching on What is the Truth of Time? On Saturday September 7th, at the same venue and a week-long retreat on Trust: Just as it is from the 22nd to the 29th of October, in the Otways.

These events are part of a worldwide tour which covers France, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, Australia and finally India.

The tour will consist of public talks, empowerments, teachings and residential retreats in most countries.

Dzogchen Rinpoche, one of the highest lamas in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, is the authentic Dzogchen lineage holder and head of Dzogchen Monastery in South India with more than 280 branch monasteries in Asia mainly in Tibet, India, Nepal and Bhutan and in the West.

On the 6th of September; doors open at 7.00pm, talk begins at 7.30pm. Tickets are $20 ($15 concession). For tickets and further information call 0416 404 826 or go to
