Sat, May 5
9:30am – 4:45pm
This event is a rare opportunity to contemplate Buddha’s profound wisdom teachings with our National Western Spiritual Director.
We believe that things are as real as they appear, when in fact nothing is as real as it appears. Like a mirage that appears to be water but is not in fact water, things appear in one way and exist in another. We are grasping at a reality behind the appearance of things, when there is none to be found. And this destroys our peace of mind every day.
If we didn’t suffer, we wouldn’t need to examine the nature of reality because we would be fine. But all our negative states of mind – such as anger and attachment, including all our unconstructive actions and their fruits of suffering – arise because we are ignorantly grasping at something that is not there.
Through Gen Rigpa’s practical explanations and guided meditations, we will learn exactly how to destroy our ignorance including all our pain and problems.
Not to be missed! Everyone welcome.
