Buddhist Refuge: talk on 19 May

Normally everybody is taking refuge in something. Some in a Mercedes, others in their families, in being rich, smart, young, etc. But if we look for something lasting, something beyond coming and going, then what can we rely on?

The Buddha explained that mind itself is the only source of lasting happiness and the teachings about Buddhist Refuge align us with this. Starting with an understanding of our goal (the Buddha), the teachings which bring us there (the Dharma), and the friends who help us on the way (the Sangha), this talk will explore these teachings and also explain the role of the teacher (the Lama) who is necessary to practice Diamond Way Buddhism.

This talk will be given by Anthony Hopson, one of the founders of Diamond Way Buddhism Hong Kong. He took Buddhist Refuge in 1997 with Lama Ole Nydhal and has taught in Europe, Hong Kong, Japan, Vietnam and Australia. Anthony is actively involved in various translation and editing projects with respect to Buddhist meditations and texts.

The talk will cost HK$80 (or HK$50 for concessions) and will start at 2pm.

Venue: Diamond Way Buddhist Centre Hong Kong, 2/F, 3-5 Jervois Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

All are welcome to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
