Abbot, Ven. Noom, though only about 5th or 6th in line of seniority, presides with a balance between strictness and liberality, drawing on skills learned from Thai forest masters and as a successful businessman.

Visitors or welcome to apply for permission to stay. A list of the precepts and monastic traditions is available on arrival. As there is a lot of free time, the Wat is ideal for experienced meditators or those not requiring structured meditation.

Unique Opportunity to attend Dan Browns "The Pointing Out Style of Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, Level 1" in Sydney,  14-21 April 2013

For additional information on Dan Brown, the Pointing Out Style Course Descriptions, and worldwide schedule see:

  http://www.pointingoutway.org/

The pointing-out style is an ancient method of teaching meditation, grounded in the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism and the dynamic relationship between student and teacher. Structured methodology leads the meditator through increasing levels of concentration and insight, to profound “crossing over” instructions, the very gateway to awakening. With roots in Mahamudra and Dzogchen lineages, this 7-day retreat with Dan Brown has been created to give participants both the understanding and the skills required to practice and master these precious teachings.

What: Level 1 Pointing Out Way Retreat 

Where: Chevalier Center, 1 Roma Ave, Kensington NSW 2033 Australia

His Holiness has described him as being "ïn the inner circle of my friends.

We usually hold an annual 11 day retreat in October, and many weekend teaching workshops throughout the year.  Ven Rinpoche gives initiations into Highest Yoya Tantra Deities, and various other teaching events.

Notes and Events:

The Tibetan Buddhist Rime Institute was founded in 2006 under the direction of Tibetan Lama Khentrul Rinpoche in Melbourne, Australia. It teaches the Ri-me view of harmony within all Buddhist traditions and respect for all spiritual traditions. In addition, it is introducing the extremely precious, rare and unique Jonang Kalachakra lineage teachings in the western world, with the hope that these will flourish.

The Ri-me view means to understand the uniqueness of the teachings of all different traditions and be able to view these in a non-contradictory way, so they can benefit everyone.

In the western world we already have a very extensive education system which gives us a good understanding of the external world. However, there is very limited opportunity to learn how to control our thoughts and emotions and master the inner world. If we engage in this type of training, it can give us powerful inner strength and a deep level of happiness, which is independent of outside circumstances. Learning this wisdom in a Ri-me way is a most rare and precious opportunity, which can bring harmony, unity, appreciation and genuine love to the members of groups, communities and families, and within any relationship. The teachings give us practical and profound wisdom in a simple way for the benefit of everyone, regardless of one\\\'s beliefs or background, and can help us achieve a meaningful life.

For those who already have a solid foundation in Buddhism, the institute provides authentic Mahayana and Vajrayana teachings and opportunities for retreat. Our main goal is to propagate on the Kalachackra Tantra, which we are very privileged to be able to share, as it is a powerful practice for individual and world peace.

The Institute also undertakes many projects, one example being the fascinating annual tour of Tibet, with the goal of experiencing and learning about a different way of viewing life, along with a different culture, lifestyle  and authentic spirituality. Through this we can develop an enriched attitude, wisdom and inner capacity, helping us discover true happiness within ourselves. Also we have the opportunity to spend money in a most beneficial way, supporting people with extremely poor healthcare and in need of basic education.

Activities at the Institute include:

Meditation for beginners: Tuesdays 7.30pm - 9.00pm, Wednesdays 1.00pm - 2.30pm and Sundays 10.00am - 11.30am

Introduction to Buddhist philosophy for beginners: Wednesdays 7.30pm - 9.00pm

Advanced Buddhist philosophy: Thursdays 7.30pm - 9.00pm.

Notes and Events:

We meet on Monday night at Barr St, Balmain. It is good to let us know that you are coming, because the building is a security building.

We sit for 45 minutes, and then we train for the next hour or so in the practice of mindfulness while speaking.
