Lamrim Retreat Weekend

March 8 @ 7:00 pm - March 10 @ 12:00 pm

Free

“Learning give us general knowledge of the topic and reduces one level of confusion and doubt. Thinking about and analyzing the teachings gives us a more nuanced conceptual understanding based on reason. Meditation integrates this understanding with our very being.”

(The Dalai Lama and Ven. Thubten Chodron. Approaching the Buddhist Path. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion, vol. 1. Wisdom Publications. Epub edition p. 193.)

OVERVIEW:

The Lamrim teachings present the entire path to enlightenment. Engaging in a retreat on the Lamrim, even for just a short weekend retreat, helps us reflect on the teachings and lean into them so that we can actualize a positive change in our minds. What are we retreating from? Our negative habit of harming others which traps us in samsara over and over again.

Ven. Losang Tendrol will lead meditations on a range of Lamrim subjects. In each session, Ven Tendrol will offer a short, guided meditation and then participants will meditate on their own alternating between placement meditation and analytical meditation. Retreatants are welcome to bring their own reference materials to use during the retreat.  The retreat is suitable for anyone who is interested in deepening their understanding of the Buddhist path.
