Cultivating happiness in a confusing world

Presented by the 15th Reteng Rinpoche (A Tibetan Living Buddha)

"Wisdom's arrow fails to target anxieties.Those complex religious rituals and tongue twister-like mantras are only staged to provide spectacle" - The 15th Reteng Rinpoche

We all believe that we are on the way to bliss and happiness, but also wonder why pain and distress shadow our lives. Let the Living Buddha, the 15th Reteng Rinpoche, guide you with his wisdom and share the secret to happiness.

He is Living Buddha, and he is different. Through his ability to combine the holy and the secular, he touches people's hearts with his poetry. He enjoys drinking good coffee, taking photos and sharing his interpretations of life on the social media. Unlike monks in ancient times, who were hermits living in isolated monasteries and temples, he is socially active in the world.

He said, "You cannot save living creatures from torment if you shrink from contact with human society and fail to understand what really plagues human souls."

He is a monk who learnt what really plagues human souls from his experience of living within communities. Every year he spends half of the time on the road, in Beijing, Shanghai, and in countries like the United States, Canada, and Australia, teaching the art of living in the present through practice of Buddhist wisdom. He believes that the mindfulness practices of Tibetan Buddhism are compatible with all religions in reducing the anxiety of modern life. He practices acceptance and compassion towards all beings.

He is the 15th Reteng Rinpoche, a Tibetan Living Buddha, who'd like to share the secret of happiness with you.

Reteng Rinpoche is presenting a public talk entitled 'Secret of Happiness: Cultivating Wisdom in a Confusing World' on Sunday 5th November at Melbourne Town Hall, 90-130 Swanston St. Melbourne, from 7:00 pm. We humbly invite you to attend this talk.
