10:30 am - 4:00 pm
We know from experience that the everyday things of this world – our jobs, relationships, possessions, status, etc. – cannot supply us with real security or happiness. All of these things are fleeting. Finally, they vanish altogether. Establishing inner refuge in our mind and heart is the foundation for experiencing freedom and joy here and now….and on into the future.
In this course Gen Rinzin will explain the deeply enriching practice of going for refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha every day, the means whereby we enter into Buddhist practice. The day will include a Refuge Ceremony for those who wish to receive the special blessings of refuge and to formally become a Buddhist.
Everyone is welcome. However, the course is geared toward those who have been attending classes for a while and wish to move deeper into their practice.
