Tharpa Australia is going on the road!
We believe that everyone needs to learn to meditate - happiness comes from a peaceful mind. We also believe that libraries are incredible places and easy for communities to access. So we are holding free talks at a number of selected libraries around Australia, starting with Tasmania in August, South Australia in September and New South Wales and Queensland in October.
These talks will be based on the book "How to Transform Your Life" by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso ( get your free ebook download below) and will be exploring the benefits of meditation and how to get started. They will be 1 hour long, very practical and useful for anyone, regardless of age, religion or background.

How to Transform your life - by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations, we tend to regard the situation itself as our problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we can learn how to develop and maintain a peaceful mind, through meditation, we can reduce and eventually cease our experience of problems.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso is a fully accomplished meditation master and internationally renowned teacher of Buddhism who has pioneered the introduction of modern Buddhism into contemporary society. He is the author of 23 highly acclaimed books that perfectly transmit the ancient wisdom of Buddhism to our modern world.
Gen Kelsang Ani, Gen Kelsang Lhachog and Kelsang Chowang are fully ordained, western Buddhist nuns and each have more than a decade of experience in teaching and public speaking.
Gen Ani is the resident teacher of the Kadampa Meditation Centre in Brisbane, Gen Lhachog is the resident teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Sydney and Kelsang Chowang is the administration director of Kadampa Meditation Centre Australia.
Each of them imparts a deep, personal experience of the practice of meditation in daily life.
