Ven. Vimokkha’s teachings at Buddhist Library were very well received in November last year. This year we are so glad to have Ven. re-visiting Sydney in April to offer a two week workshop to friends of the Buddhist Library.
Tuesday, 11th & 18th April
In this workshop, Ven. will explain clearly on the pragmatic approach to develop sixteen stages of breathing meditation (Anapanasati), and how we can develop the practice and use it in our daily work and activities.

His style of teaching meditation is approachable, candid and experiential.

All Sessions by Dana (Donation).
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
