A Special Gift For All Attendees

Dear ##firstname##,

We have great news for everyone attending either the Teachings or the Public Conversation in Melbourne!

All ticket holders for the Dalai Lama events will receive free entry into the Melbourne MindBodySpirit Festival. The Festival is being held over the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June also and is at the same venue as His Holiness's Teachings, the Melbourne Convention Centre.

The Festival is open from 10am till 7pm daily from Friday 10 June through to Monday 13 June 2011, so there is plenty of time to visit after the Teachings or Public Conversation.

Tickets to the MindBodySpirit Festival are usually $16 for adults so this is a great offering from our friends at MBS.

What Creates Compassion?

During his Teachings on A Bodhisattva's way of Life by Shantideva, His Holiness will explore:

Wisdom – Ethics - Generosity – Patience
- Zeal & Meditative Concentration

These are the six perfections that provide the basis for the Bodhisattva's Way of life.

As we all know, His Holiness is renowned throughout the world for his Compassion. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has stated that if he has any understanding of Compassion, it is entirely on the basis of this text that he possesses it.

How fortunate are we that His Holiness is offering us the very teaching on Compassion that he embodies? What a blessing to be able to be in the presence of His Holiness,
One of the most compassionate beings throughout history, as he delivers his Teachings on this profound text. His Holiness considers this text a seminal influence in his life and work and repeatedly stresses the benefits of its study.

If His Holiness the Dalai Lama stresses the benefits of studying this text then why not take this opportunity to secure your place at this teaching now.

For the Benefit of All Beings

One of His Holiness' daily prayers and dedications was composed by Shantideva in the eighth century:

"As long as space endures,
as long as sentient beings remain,
may I likewise remain
to dispel the sorrows of the world."

If you think about your family, friends, colleagues, neighbours, etc, how many of them could benefit from being in the presence of His Holiness as he offers us his Wisdom & Compassion? If there are any people you can think of right now that would benefit from this wonderful opportunity, then please click on the button below and share this email with them.
