Wisdom Words


Heathy food for the Mind

Physical and Mental are two different condition.
You can ask someone to help you tidy up your messy place etc.
But when you are hungry, you can't ask someone to eat for you. If someone were eat for you, you would not get full and you would still be hungry. In order to remove the hungry you need to eat for yourself.
The mind is the same. If you are unhappy, you can't ask someone to meditate for you to be happy. You have to do it yourself.

Her Eminence will then lead a White Tara Retreat from 3-8 December 2016.

Patio Blinds for the Gazebo

An Opportunity to Contribute

Please help raise funds for


Khenpo la spoke about the aim to enclose the gazebo on the retreat property in Tilba with patio clear blinds so it can be weatherproofed.

The idea is to allow this great space to be utilised fully, having our tea and coffee breaks away from the dining room area, especially during retreat times whilst enjoying the natural environment and ocean views.  The aim is to enclose and protect all in the gazebo for different weather conditions with weatherproof blinds…

Our goal is raise $1,500 by mid – September.  Any amount you can spare towards this goal and the flourishing of Kamalashila Tibetan Buddhist Centre would be very much appreciated.
