Tibetan Cultural evening
Journey into a Radiant and Endangered World

SUNDAY 9th November 6pm at The J - 60 Noosa Drive Noosa Heads

Immerse yourself in the unique beauty that is Tibet and her people. Tibetan Lama Geshe Tashi Tsering will welcome us with a short talk and introduce the film VAJRA SKY OVER TIBET a cinematic pilgrimage bearing witness to the indomitable faith of Tibet's Buddhist community and the ultimate threat to its very survival. This is one of the rare documentaries to be filmed entirely inside Tibet and has received the blessing and endorsement of The Dalai Lama. Following the film we'll eat Tibetan food (momos) and enjoy chai and cake while enjoying the enchanting performance of renowned Tibetan Musician Tenzin Choegyal.

Tickets $25.00 per person ($20 concession)
Bookings essential. To book call The J on (07) 5455 4455 drop in to 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Heads

Reviews for Varja Sky Over Tibet:
"A well-photographed inside look at a fascinating culture and its people" --LA Times
"The material is so compelling that we keep watching" --San Francisco Chronicle
"Astonishingly lovely... As the images unfold and the facts accrete like sand in a mandala, 'Vajra Sky Over Tibet' builds an atmosphere of serene outrage" -The Boston Globe

A fundraiser for Chenrezig Institute and The Good Fortune Trust

The Good Fortune Trust is a non-profit organisation which supports Buddhist monks and nuns in India and Tibet. We work to provide meals, upgrade facilities and fund education programmes for the monks and nuns. Our efforts are inspired by our patron Geshe Tashi Tsering, senior resident teacher at Chenrezig Institute on the Sunshine Coast.

Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat and practice. Established in 1974 Chenrezig Institute was the first Tibetan Buddhist centre in the Western World and remains one of the largest. Today, the Institute is home to two Tibetan Geshes (Lamas), a large community of ordained Sangha (nuns and monks), residents, volunteers, retreatants and guests. Apart from the formal study programmes, Chenrezig Institute is a peaceful, calm and relaxing place to spend a few hours, days or weeks. Stroll along the bush paths, wander in the formal garden, sip espresso in the caf, have a vegetarian meal, drop in for a meditation class or teaching, or just sit and listen to life.
