What we're about

This is a Chenrezig Institute (Eudlo Qld) Outreach operating in Brisbane City Central. It initiated as a group in early 2017 set up by Alan Carter who has been a Buddhist in the Tibetan Tradition for 24 years. To date classes have all been mostly given by Alan Carter. Last year Chenrezig Institute's Geshe Phunstok Tsultrim gave a day class with 40+people attending. In is hoped in 2020 other teachers will run classes.

Chenrezig Institute is associated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) a worldwide organization of over 160 centres founded by Lama Yeshe and Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche fpmt.org). The Outreach entity was given the name "Shenpen Sherab" which is Tibetan for "Benefitting Beings through Wisdom" in May 2018 by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche the spiritual Director of FPMT.
