The Five powers are a recipe for squeezing the Buddha's teachings into our already overcrowded lives. If we're struggling to find time for meditation or study, these simple but profound tools will provide us with a structure and motivation so that we can make our lives happy and meaningful - even when doing the dishes.

"When you practice the five powers, every single thing you do is only for numberless sentient beings and therefore, everything you do only becomes the cause for achieving the peerless happiness of full enlightenment.

This is the greatest profit that can be achieved with this life and so this practice is the most beneficial one for achieving peerless happiness. It means that every single action you do, whether it is meditation and prayers or doing your job, becomes the cause of happiness for all sentient beings...This means that you will have the best, happiest life now and also the best, happiest life in the future – like the sun shining in this world and eliminating all darkness." – Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Throughout this weekend course Geshela's extensive knowledge will be complemented by Ven. Chokyi's down to earth approach to practice - a powerful combination to support you in your development.

Saturday 27th Oct 9:00am - Sunday 28th 3:30pm, held in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute. Facility Fee: $108 Meals and accommodation are available separately.
