Choose Happiness - Regional Victoria Public Talks


It’s not uncommon to feel we are wandering aimlessly through life. Searching for, but never truly finding the contentment and happiness we seek. What have you daydreamed about and wished for in your life? For some, it’s a large house, well-paid job or fast car. For others it’s reputation, good looks, power, excitement or adventure. Many seek meaning and happiness in relationships. All these things can make us superficially happy for a short while, but they can never give us the pure and everlasting happiness that all of us, in our heart of hearts, long for. Happiness is a state of mind, so it’s cause must also be within the mind. The real cause of happiness is inner peace. 

Join Buddhist monk and meditation teacher Gen Kelsang Dornyingfor a public talk on true happiness in Bright, Wangaratta, Wodonga, and Shepperton. Gen Dornying will explain the art of meditation, and how to enjoy great quality of life – whatever happens!



Gen Kelsang Dornying is the Resident Teacher at KMC Melbourne and KMC Australia and has over 19 years experience in teaching meditation and Buddhism. He is inspiring and light-hearted, and makes Buddha's teachings relevant to everyday life.
