A SENIOR Tibetan Buddhist lama will tell people of Melbourne how they can slow down and de-stress their busy lives.
His Eminence the 7th Dzogchen Rinpoche says that the pace of modern life is distracting people from their real purpose – to lead a more peaceful life.
Dzogchen Rinpoche will share his Buddhist wisdom in Melbourne on Friday 8th November at Toorak Uniting Church Hall, 603 Toorak Rd during a public talk entitled ‘Why Are You So Busy?’.
His Eminence said that often we are so caught up in our busy lives that we lose touch with what brings us true happiness.
He said: “We don’t even realise how distracted we are from our real purpose, having been hooked by the promise of more through longer work hours and taking on more commitments.
“Other times we are simply running away from something we fear. This imbalance leads to stress and dis-ease making us time-poor and preventing us from the things that really bring meaning and joy to our lives.
“Many of us realise we are stuck but don’t know how to make the changes necessary to lead a more peaceful life.’
In the public talk, drawing on ancient Dzogchen Teachings, Dzogchen Rinpoche will share wonderful heart advice and methods on how to live with the natural flow of life that we were intended to live, from the very beginning.
Doors open at 7pm, the talk begins at 7:30pm.
Tickets are $25 ($20 concession) and can be purchased online at www.trybooking.com/DEDU

There will also be the opportunity to attend a Three-Day Weekend Seminar and Meditation. The Seminar, on the topic ‘Who Is In Control?, will take place from 9th to 11th November in Toorak.
In these teachings, Dzogchen Rinpoche will explain further how we can make a real change in our busy lives. By guiding us on how to ask ourselves the right questions, we begin to make choices that unclutter our mind. Rinpoche will show us how we can apply this to all areas of our lives including our careers and relationships.
These events are part of a worldwide tour which covers France, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Australia and finally India.
Dzogchen Rinpoche 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.
