Ven.Bikkhuni Kusuma’s Dhamma talk 29nd June 2013
An invaluable dhamma discussion was held by Ven.Bikkhuni Kusuma in simple terms so that everybody could understand easily. Many of the participants were benefited with lots of dhamma knowledge to their lives. As Bikkhuni is at 80???s and after having a morning session too, she was very tired and we appreciate her effort to deliver a successful event. We wish her live longer and may attain all courage to success her future events locally and internationally. Thank you very much for the participants.

Saturday Meditation and Master Chi Kwang Sunim’s Dhamma talk 02nd February 2013
As an added event, Ven Bodhicitta kindly invited Master Chi Kwang Sunim to deliver a special Dhamma talk at Nisala Arana Saturday meditation program on 02nd February 2013 at Chislom Institute of TAFE, Dandenong. The Master talked about her experience and the way she faced ???Black Saturday??? bush-fire on 07th February 2009. Venerable explained how she gained the ability to remain calm in the midst of such a calamity and made prompt decisions that saved her life and others. Zen Master also emphasized the importance of meditation and how the meditation can help us to calm our minds and develop our good side and intelligence that helps us to be a better person.
Master has taught meditation to Ven Bodhicitta when Venerable was a young girl. Ven Bodhicitta was so happy to have one of her teachers visiting us and guiding us. Master was so kind to extend her stay with us and we were so lucky to have this well known Meditation Master all for our selves. Nisala Arana devotees really appreciated Masters presence and look forward to have her at Chisholm in the near future.An article about her charity work can be found at http://www.abc.net.au/innovation/vicbushfires/blog/chi-kwang-buddhist-nun-environmentalist.htm
