Buddhism

Melbourne, Australia, 19 June 2013 - This morning His Holiness the Dalai Lama drove about 12 kilometres out of Melbourne to the Quang Minh Temple, a centre for the Vietnamese Buddhist community, overlooking the Maribyrnong River. He was invited by Geshe Sonam Thargye, Director of the Drol Kar Buddhist Centre, to give an explanation of the 'Heart Sutra' and 'Eight Verses for Training the Mind.' Well-wishers, among them Tibetans, Vietnamese, Chinese and Australians, crowded the temple's halls to greet him and listen to him speak.
