Walk in the footsteps of the Buddha

Chenrezig Institute in conjunction with Ekno Experience invites you to walk in the footsteps of the Buddha on a pilgrimage to sacred Buddhist sites in India and attend teachings with His Holiness the 17th Karmapa.

This unique experience will be led by Chenrezig Institute's Tibetan Lama, Geshe Lobsang Jamyang and a veteran tour guide from Ekno Experience.

The pilgrimage, from December 1st - 21st will take in  Rajgir, Sharvasti, Lumbini, Kushinagar, Vashali, and includes attending teachings with His Holiness the 17th Karmapa at Kagyu Monlam in Bodhgaya and with Geshe Jamyang along the way and at Root Institute. You can see a full itinerary here http://www.eknoexperience.com/travel/chenrezig.html

A free information session for the pilgrimage will be held at Chenrezig Institute on Sunday 4 July at 1.30pm.  The session will include information on the itinerary and pilgrimage sites, visas, airfares and accommodation, food and tips to stay healthy, medicine and vaccinations and what clothes to bring.

You can make a day of it with Dharma Kids Club happening at 10.30am, take a stroll through the gardens or come for lunch (bookings essential).

Chenrezig Institute is a centre for Buddhist study, meditation, retreat, and practice nestled in the foothills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. 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 a Tibetan Geshe (Lama), a large community of ordained Sangha (monks and nuns), students, 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.
