    Buddhist Spring Festival - How to find peace in an uncertain world

    Buddhist Spring Festival
    Weekend of 10 and 11 November – 10.30 am – 4 pm

    How to find peace in an uncertain world

    • Hear leading teachers and speakers explore how to find peace in this turbulent world
    • Each talk includes guided meditation
    • Meditation is an ancient game changer – meditation teaches that happiness comes from our mind’s reaction, not the event itself
    • Experience free meditations led by some of our younger students.
    • Meet the remarkable 14-year-old Campbell Remess of Project 365 – at our Ceremony for World Peace at 12 noon Saturday – who will explain how he is changing the world 'one teddy at a time'. The ceremony is held in the Society's magnificent traditional Tibetan temple, including prayers for world peace.
    • You can also hear Campbell again at 1 pm on Sunday – when he will present a talk in the temple immediately after the guided tour of the temple.

    Relax in the peace and serenity of the centre gardens:

    • Join free garden tours covering organic cultivation and the art of rose and salvia pruning
    • Meander through 10 acres of peaceful gardens with lawns, lakes and many birds
    • Unwind under the shade of golden robinias and Californian redwoods
    • See the beauty of many-coloured salvias, roses, marigolds, satin hibiscus and many more plants and trees

    Plenty to do:

    • Magnificent Tibetan temple with amazing golden roof, spires and ornaments
    • 12 ft statue of Shakyamuni Buddha
    • Guided tours of the temple explaining the iconography and Tibetan culture
    • Browse the colourful market and Enjoyment Shop
    • Enjoy delicious vegetarian food with fresh coffee, home-made chai and cakes in the courtyard cafe
    • View a pictorial history of Tibet with new photos and DVDs
    • Explore the second-hand book stall raising funds for our homeless program
    • Find children's activities in the market and children's meditation area

    Entry $5. Family rate $10 for parents and school-age children or younger.
    Facility charge for talks is $10 for one talk, $15 for two or three a day. Temple tours are $5.
    Photo exhibition, 30-minute guided meditations each morning and garden tours are free. All proceeds support the temple and gardens.

    The Tibetan Buddhist Society's Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre is 45 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, 20 Cookes Road, Yuroke, Melways 385 J8 (turn off Mickleham Rd).
