In 2011, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche began a series of one-month teaching retreats, all to be presented at the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion near Bendigo. The series of these teachings include Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara - A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life as well as preparation for the transmission of the rare Rinjung Gyatsa initiations. The three host centres – Atisha Centre, Thubten Shedrup Ling Monastery and the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion – are pleased to welcome Lama Zopa back to Australia in 2014 to continue these teachings, instructions and transmissions.
UPDATE OCTOBER 8TH:
The program for the second half of the Lama Zopa Rinpoche Retreat will begin on Sunday the 12th October with a highest yoga tantra initiation followed by some of the Rinjung Gyatse initiations over the remaining period.
The highest yoga tantra initiation will take from 3 to 5 days to complete.
Participants must attend the entire initiation and cannot attend just a part of it.
A prerequisite for attending the initiation is to have taken refuge and have a good understanding of the Lam Rim.
