Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo gave a series of talks, titled A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Happiness, in Sydney Australia in 2018. The talks cover a fundamental topic in Buddhism: the Four Noble Truths. Always explaining the most difficult concepts with clarity and a sense of humour, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo has been much loved and cherished by Western buddhist students alike.
We will come together on eight Thursdays, meditate and to watch the talk. The evening will start with a 30-minutes Shamatha mediation, follow by Tenzin Palmo’s talk (roughly between 30 to 45 minutes), 15 minutes discussion group. The evening will end with another 30-minutes of meditation.
About Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo
Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo was born in 1943 and raised in London. She became a Buddhist while still in her teens, and at the age of twenty traveled to India by boat. In 1964, she was one of the first Westerners to be ordained as Tibetan Buddhist monastic. The international bestseller ‘Cave in the Snow’ chronicles her twelve years of seclusion and meditation living alone in a remote Himalayan cave. In 1999, deeply concerned with the plight of Buddhist nuns, she established Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery in India. Tenzin Palmo now spends most of the year at Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery and occasionally tours to give teachings and raise funds for the ongoing needs of the DGL nuns and Nunnery.
