Siddharta's Intent Australia
Buddhist Studies & Meditation with Jakob Leschy
"Welcoming our own culture’s emphasis on analysis and rationality, I follow the Buddha in his discouragement of blind faith and encourage asking the hard questions. I see scepticism and enquiry as essential in establishing genuine trust and a real understanding of the Buddhist path. Once a foundation of understanding frees our outlook, our application of such understanding through the practice of meditation will free our heart. On such a path of awakening, the realities of life continually inspire greater insight and compassion". Jakob Leschly
Siddhartha's Intent Australia workshops, retreats and study groups are conducted by Jakob Leschly. Jakob has been appointed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche as his resident teacher in Australia.
Every Monday we offer a programme of study and meditation practice at Living Yoga Sanga.
5 to 6 pm: General or specific talks on Buddhism. For both old and new students.
6 to 6:30 pm: Introductory talk on the basics of Buddhist meditation
6:30-7.30 pm: Meditation (20 min sitting, 10 min mindful walking, 20 min sitting)
