Programme :
Week 1-2 The Bodhisattva’s Way of Life
The Bodhicharyavatara is easy to understand and is revered wherever the Mahayana is studied and practised. It explains the meaning of all Buddha’s teachings, in particular, all that needs to be practised by those wishing to train on the bodhisattvas’ vehicle
Week 3-4 Rinjung Gyatsa Empowerments
The rinjung gyatsa initiations usually begin with Yamantaka and Vajrayogini initiations, which involve taking bodhisattva and tantric vows and making a commitment for daily practice and possibly a retreat according to Rinpoche’s instruction at the time. One cannot attend “for the blessing” and not take commitments. There will also be a daily mantra commitment for at least some of the rinjung gyatsa deities.

The Atisha Centre, Thubten Shedrup Ling Monastery and the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion Bendigo, Australia will be jointly hosting a month of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s precious teachings. Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara - the Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life will be taught during weeks one and two, followed by the transmission of the rare Rinjung Gyatsa Initiations during weeks three and four.

The three neighbouring centres are located a 15 minute drive North West of Bendigo in Central Victoria, a former rich goldfields area.We anticipate over 250 people will attend the retreat. Early registration is recommended, as places will be limited.
