When wisdom is in our hearts, our mind is very clear, confident, and free from disturbing thoughts. Wisdom gives us clarity and insight and, like an inner spiritual guide, helps us to act thoughtfully, skillfully, and meaningfully in daily life. Since all our negative minds are based upon the opposite of wisdom – confusion – everyone needs to develop wisdom.
This wisdom, called “emptiness”, is the profound realization that everything in our world exists as a mere appearance to our mind, like a dream. Through “waking up” to this truth, we will discover that the world is not as real as it appears, and this sacred knowledge of emptiness will liberate us from suffering permanently.
This festival will begin with an Introduction Online on Friday evening, followed by online Empowerment and teachings on Saturday and teachings on Sunday. There will be a short retreat online on Monday and Tuesday. The online classes will be available until the end of September for you to view.
