The View from the Mountain Top
an evening with Tara Choying Lhamo
7.00 pm Thursday 30th March at the Nelson Buddhist Centre
Tara Choying Lhamo is an Austrian-born dharma practitioner who has lived in retreat for over 20 years, twelve of which she spent high in the mountains of Nepal in Lapchi, one of the retreat caves used by Tibet's great yogi and saint, Milarepa.
From a Buddhist perspective, entering retreat is not running away but a noble undertaking aimed at gaining insight into the nature of self. True, lasting happiness results from the realisation that this apparently unchanging, permanent entity we call our 'self' is a misconception. Based on this misconception, all kinds of delusions, struggles and problems arise in the heart and mind obscuring the joy of knowing reality as it is.
Tara agreed to speak publicly for the first time last year. During that talk, those attending were deeply moved by her story and her presence. We are delighted that she will share her experiences and insights with us here in Nelson
