The Dhamma Road: Tudong journey from Geelong to Sydney

With Venerable Chao Khun Keng

Cost: Free | Registration for in person event is essential

Venerable Chao Khun Keng, fellow monastics and lay practitioners are on an inspiring Tudong journey walking a thousand kilometres on foot from Geelong to Sydney, to promote the Buddha’s messages of peace, harmony and compassion. Tudong was an austere practiced by the Buddha and his followers, and it literally means “shaking off”. In the walking, with little possession, and only taking one meal a day in the morning, this practice can be greatly conductive to the development of wisdom and insight, and in doing so “shake off” one’s greed, anger and delusions.

Metta Centre is honoured to host Chao Khun Keng at the Metta Centre, Bankstown, for a Dhamma Talk on 15 May 2021. With 34 years of monastic experience, Chao Khun Keng has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with us on Buddhism for wholesome living. Hear about the Tudong journey and the wisdom of the Buddha’s teachings.
