We are delighted to have guest speaker Behram Ghista during the rains retreat for 2018. This is an interactive talk. Behram Ghista offers talks, workshops and retreats in India and Australia. Behram is fondly called “Master B” by his students because of his mastery in imparting the Buddhist teachings in a light and playful manner, through which he inspires the participants to say “Yes” to discovering what is finest in them.

This talk is entitled ‘Be Your Own Good Fortune’. It is said that “Fortune favours the prepared.” How prepared are you to navigate safely through life’s many illusions, especially the illusion that makes you believe that all is well in your world and you don’t need to make time for personal growth and learning?
When we are in tune with the right principles and methods for achieving our aspirations, painful effects cannot possibly accrue. If we pursue sound methods, no grief can find its way into our hearts and no painful event can shake our composure. When our actions are true to right principles, only joy can manifest from them; for to say that good causes can produce bad effects is to say that nettles can be reaped from the sowing of corn.
Audio teachings are available for downloading for free from the BSWA Podcast (Dharma talks and guided meditations) and Deeper Dhamma Podcast (meditation retreats and suttas). Videos can be viewed on the BSWA Youtube Channel and our YouTube playlists.
