Mahayana: Vast View, Open Heart

With Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo and Pieter Oosthuizen

June 27 - July 4, 2018

This retreat will explore new developments that took place during the Mahayana period such as the Prajnaparamita Sutra, Madhyamaka and Yogacara philosophies, Buddha Nature, and the greater emphasis on compassionate motivation. Meditations on Tonglen, the Four Immeasurables, and the Six Paramitas will also be taught.

We are excited to announce that this year, Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo will join us for three days of teachings to offer a commentary on Atisha’s “The Bodhisattva’s Garland of Jewels,” one of Atisha’s most well-known texts on Lojong (Mind-Training).

During the retreat there will be noble silence and six hours of practice per day as well as two hours of teachings. An optional oral exam will be given at the end of the retreat. We are sorry that we cannot accommodate children on the land during this retreat.

This is a required retreat for the Magyu Mother Lineage Program and the Gateway Program.

If you are attending the Vajrayana retreat and wish to stay on the land between retreats, choose 3 extra nights. Extra night lodging is only an option for those taking two consecutive retreats.

This retreat is open to all.

Suggested Dana: $240-$320
