About this retreat

TRANSFORM YOUR PROBLEMS IN OPPORTUNITIES

We are delighted to have again the presence of Kelsang Rigma to guide this special retreat on training of the mind. In particular, we will deepen the precious and magical teachings and meditations of Taking and Giving, which are part of Loyong’s instructions, a powerful method to transform adverse conditions into the spiritual path. For a long time, these practices remained secret and were only transmitted to some advanced students. Later, due to its positive effect even for non-Buddhist people, it was decided to offer them openly to everyone. To this end, the great Tibetan teacher Geshe Chekawa wrote a precious Loyong text titleted: “Training of the mind in seven points.”

At present, and thanks to the kindness of our Spiritual Guide the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, we have a commentary on “Training of the mind in seven points” of Geshe Chekawa with the title of “Universal Compassion”. This masterpiece of Buddhism and meditation reveals the essence of these precious teachings that come from the heart of the Buddha. With them we can purify our mind, heal diseases and eliminate any kind of karmic obstruction in our spiritual progress towards the permanent happiness of Nirvana.

This is wonderful! Please, do not miss this opportunity!

THE MEDITATION OF TAKING AND GIVING

In this practice, on the basis of universal compassion, we learn to take the suffering of others and give them love in meditation; combining breathing with a special visualization. This meditation is very powerful and deeply transformative. With dedication and perseverance we will gradually be able to purify our negative karma and transform the most difficult situations in our lives into opportunities for our spiritual growth.

ANCIENT WISDOM THAT ILLUMINATES OUR PRESENT

Retreats based on Buddhist wisdom that answers with amazing clarity and depth to the great questions we keep asking ourselves.

“Just as every part of a medicinal tree – the roots,trunk,  branches, leaves, flowers and the fruits – provides medicine and is useful in curing disease, so every part of the instructions on training the mind can cure the mental disease of the delusions. Ordinary medicines can cure only physical disease, but the panacea of training the mind cures sicknesses of both body and mind. This is why the practice is sometimes called the unsurpassed medicine. ”
