A Senior Tibetan lama will tell the people of Melbourne how to realise the true purpose of their lives.

His Eminence the 7th, Dzogchen Rinpoche, says that many people are rightly searching for meaning in their lives but end up looking in all the wrong places and the happiness they seek escapes them.

Dzogchen Rinpoche will be in Melbourne on Thursday 18th September at Hawthorn Arts Centre (360 Burwood Rd) to give a public talk entitled ‘What Is The Real Purpose of Your Life?’ – Doors open at 7pm.

His Eminence says: “Searching for happiness we buy in to the idea of a perfect life – a good job, a nice house, the fairy tale romance.

“Over many years we work hard to build this lifestyle but in reality the stress of maintaining it can leave us feeling exhausted and dissatisfied.

“Confused that this has not brought the long-term contentment we had hoped for, we can find ourselves lacking direction and questioning the true meaning of our life.

“Instead we can draw on ancient Buddhist wisdom to practice a profound yet simple method which will help us realise the deeper purpose of our lives so we can experience effortless peace and lasting fulfilment”.

Doors open at 7pm and the talk begins at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 ($15 concession) and can be purchased online at For further information call 0416 404 826 or email

The talk will be followed by a weekend teaching on ‘How to Truly Follow Your Heart’ on Saturday 20 September at the same venue, and a seven day Australian Dzogchen Retreat from 5–12 November in South West Victoria. The wonderful atmosphere and beautiful natural surroundings of the retreat environment inspire meditation and support the student to gain direct experience of Dzogchen.

These events are part of a worldwide tour that covers France, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, the UK, Australia and finally India. The tour will consist of public talks, empowerments and 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, Bhutan, and in the West.
