Event description

Buddhist Meditations, Teachings & Practices

with Hobart Buddhist Meditation Centre

A program of weekly sessions that include instruction in Buddhist meditation practices and presentations of Buddhist teachings together with opportunities for questions and discussion.  Beginners are welcome.

During 2024 we will present and investigate the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, one of the major texts of Tibetan Buddhism.  This text outlines a progressive path of mental and emotional transformation involving study, contemplation and meditation.  This path enables ordinary people like us to develop increasing levels of mental calm, kindness, happiness, and clarity about reality.   These qualities in turn, enable us to help others more effectively. 

The first Tuesday of each month is devoted to introducing and practising various types of Buddhist meditation. This is a great opportunity to learn to meditate from experienced meditators in a supportive environment.

For the remaining Tuesdays of each month, we present the Buddhist philosophical framework and the logical arguments and ethical guidelines that when contemplated and practiced lead to transformation of the mind and heart. There will also be a short meditation and opportunity for questions and discussion each session.

The sessions are presented by senior students from Hobart Buddhist Meditation Centre who have studied and practiced Buddhist teachings for several decades.

There is no charge for attending, however participants are encouraged to make a donation toward Hobart Buddhist Meditation Centre’s ongoing running costs when booking a ticket. Suggested donation $5-$25 per session according to your circumstances.

If you wish to attend in person, please be reassured that our venue is wheelchair accessible. For those wishing to attend via Zoom, the link will be sent by email after you book.

Upcoming Program

Tuesday 9th, 16th, 23rd April:  Maurice Oliver will teach on Refuge in Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.  For circa 2600yrs Gautama Shakyamuni Buddha has inspired billions of people through vast and profound teachings for development of Compassion and Wisdom of reality, and by communities dedicated to spiritual lives. Yet Buddha has always been found, through dedicated practice, in our own hearts and minds.  Join us as we draw on the Buddha's and his Spiritual descendants’ teachings practicing Refuge, and practicing in accord with principles of Karma, i.e. accumulating virtues and purifying non virtuous minds.

Tuesday 30th April:  Tony Dix will teach on How Dharma Helps in Everyday Life.
