Online Seminar series

 Buddhist Study and Practice with Jakob Leschly

Siddhartha's Intent Australia offers three Online Study seminars throughout the year. Each Seminar is conducted as a series of 1 hour-weekly classes and held over a period of six weeks.

Students read the sections of the specific text prior to the online classes, where Jakob unpacks and summarises the text, using a live PowerPoint presentation which is visible on your computer. The online studies format enables anyone to participate regardless of location. Moreover, participants will have the option to download a recording of the lesson if they can’t participate in real-time, with a link being emailed after the live lesson.

A practice online session will be held one week before the first online lecture. In this session you will be able to trial the process of logging in with your computer and test the function of your computer speakers and microphone. This practice session will run for only 10-20 minutes and will not have any 'dharma' content.

An Online Study of Thinley Norbu's Magic Dance 
Thursdays, October 12 - November 16, 2017
A series of 6 talks each Thursday evening 6.30 - 7.30pm

Ordinarily we remain ignorant about the nature of reality and as such her nature is hidden to us, leaving us suffering in confusion. For the yogi who realises wisdom mind, reality is the magic dance of the five wisdom dakinis. The author of this work- Thinley Norbu Rinpoche (1931-2011) was throughout two successive incarnations, the physical and spiritual heir to the respective lineages of Dudjom Lingpa and his immediate rebirth Dudjom Rinpoche. Thinly Norbu Rinpoche taught extensively in the Himalayan regions. He also became one of the greatest expounders of Buddhism in the modern world. Magic Dance was written in the early 1980's when Rinpoche began teaching in Europe and the USA. It remains a classic celebration of the exceptional Vajrayana path to enlightenment.
