Breaking out of the Prison of Samsara - Residential Sangha Weekend

Breaking out of the Prison of Samsara - Residential Sangha Weekend

Friday 24 March – Sunday 26 March

On this retreat Taravandana, Mahasraddha and Shakyapada will lead us in exploring one of the most popular accounts of the Buddhist spiritual path - The Bodhicarayavatara, or way of the Bodhisattva, written in the early eighth century by Santideva. It takes as its subject the profound desire to become a Buddha and save all beings from suffering. The person who enacts such a desire is a Bodhisattva, and Santideva not only sets out the proctice of a Bodisattva but he also evokes the intense feelings of aspiration of one who is intent on following this path.

Spring Residential Sangha Retreat at the Beamsley Project in the Yorkshire Dales. Open to all who have attended an Introductory Course or who have a regular meditation practice.
