The Happiness Habit - Darwin | Sat 17 Feb


Event Description.

Our thoughts create our world, so our mind can be our best friend or our worst enemy. How wonderful it would be to relate to ourself and our world in a way that allows happiness and joy to naturally arise from within.

Buddha showed that by cultivating the habit of positive thinking we can engage in life in a light and relaxed way that not only affords us a rich sense of wellbeing but also brings a joyful energy to all our relationships and interactions. Probably the kindest thing we can do for ourself and others in 2024 is to develop the happiness habit.

Join Buddhist monk Gen Kelsang Rabten for this one- day workshop and embark on a transformative journey toward embracing the happiness habit.



Gen Kelsang Rabten is the Resident Teacher of KMC Australia (Dandenong Ranges) and KMC Melbourne (CBD). Ordained in 1994, he has studied under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for 30 years. He has taught in many centres around the world including Australia, New Zealand, and South-East Asia.

Gen Rabten exemplifies the essence of the modern Kadampa’s way of life, brings a warm heart and joyful attitude to sharing Buddha’s teachings and the practice of meditation.
