The Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind from Samsara, Nelson, NZ

March 14, 2023 @ 7:00 pm March 15, 2023 @ 7:00 pm UTC-8

Lama Mark Webber will be giving two talks at Nelson Buddhist Centre in March on The Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind from Samsara and Generating Bodhicitta.

The Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind from Samsara are so deep and profound they are recited and contemplated in all Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions. A deeper understanding of this contemplation enhances our wish to awaken for ourselves and all beings. This profound intent is called Bodhicitta, the awakening mind. It is the kernel of all Mahamudra and Dzogchen practices. Lama Webber will give a practical orientation to this profound topic using classic texts and modern science. 

Lama Mark Webber has been studying and teaching Buddha-dharma for over forty-five years. He has a deep and long-term interest and collaboration in a number of scientific fields and the arts which he integrates with the teaching of Buddhism.

We are asking for a $15 dana/koha for each of these talks, to support Lama Mark’s teachings and the Nelson Buddhist Centre.

There is a possibility that these talks may be available on Zoom.  However, to gain maximum benefit from Lama Mark’s teachings, we encourage you to come to the Centre for these evening talks.  Please check our website for more information.
