Description

Pure Mind, Pure Life – 5 day retreat

Based on teachings from the Spring Festival at Manjushri KMC, Gen Kelsang Tonglam will guide meditations on purifying the mind of all negativity. In particular we will be gaining practical experience of Vajrasattva meditation, the Buddha of purification, through which we can purify and release our mind from all its negativity. Through this practice we will find we will naturally become happier, our mind more flexible, and that our meditation practice in general will become more effective.

Through meditating on these profound teachings we can receive powerful blessings from Buddha Vajrasattva enabling us to purify and transform our mind to fulfil our potential for complete enlightenment. This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen our experience and understanding of a scientific method to purify our mind using Tantric technology with Gen Tonglam in the quiet setting of Bodhisattva KMC.

Everyone is welcome to attend. It is not necessary to attend the festival to engage in this retreat.

This retreat can be attended for individual days.

It is an opportunity to deepen our experience of the teachings at the Spring Festival. However, everyone is welcome to attend our retreat; it is not restricted to those who were at Spring Festival.

The Retreat Teacher – Gen Kelsang TonglamThis retreat will be guided by our special guest teacher Gen Kelsang Tonglam.Gen Kelsang Tonglam is the National Spiritual Director of Kadampa Buddhism for East Asia and the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Hong Kong and Kadampa Meditation Centre Taiwan.
