Introduction to Vajrasattva Retreat

December 9 @ 7pm: Introduction to Retreat
Retreat: December 10-13

onsite and online. Livestream with no replays.

We spend all our time and energy trying to avoid problems by making changes to our external world. However, our unhappiness and difficulties are not caused by the external world. Our difficulties are the result of negative karma we have created in the past through our own harmful actions.

Vajrasattva retreat

By relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, we can free ourselves from all our negative karma. As a result of our practice, our mind will become pure, obstacles to our spiritual development will be removed and our external conditions will improve.

In this retreat introduction, Gen Kunden will give a teaching on the purification practice of Vajrasattva – explaining guided meditations that are done in conjunction with mantra recitation. Through sincerely engaging in these meditations, we can eventually remove all our accumulated negativity. Because, the retreat following this introduction will be largely unguided, retreat attendees are strongly recommended to attend this introduction session.

Retreat Fee:
Introduction to Retreat (Dec 9): $12
Full Retreat (Dec 10 – 13): $30
Day Retreat: $10
Free for members.

Non-virtuous actions are the main causes of all our suffering in this life and countless future lives; and especially they are the main obstacles to attaining Dharma realizations. Therefore we definitely need to purify them through purification practice.
