Dalai Lama is Australia-Bound
From June 11-15, the Dalai Lama will be gracing Sydney Olympic Park with his presence on a rare trip to Australia. The reason for the trip? For five straight days, he will be teaching about meditation practices and how they factor in (or should factor in) to one’s spiritual life.
During his appearance, he will be giving a particular talk on a 9th century text called “Stages of Meditation” by the Buddhist Kamalashila. The text is considered to be the “key that opens the doors to all other major Buddhist scriptures.”
Most of us are probably (unfortunately!) not making the trek to Australia to hear the Dalai Lama speak, but on the Dalai Lama in Australia site is “Stages of Meditation” in its entirety. While long, it is definitely a worthwhile read for anyone interested in the connection between meditation and spirituality. [Paramatta Sun]
