Pure mind; pure world

December 29th - 31th




Leave the past behind: move on to a new future.
Develop your pure pontential.

Our mind is often disturbed by painful thoughts and feelings that disrupt our sense of well-being and cause us to disrupt our personal relationships and to experience various kinds of suffering. Buddha teaches us practical methods to purify our mind of this negativity and thus reduce our suffering now and in the future. As our mind becomes purer, our experiences and relationships improve. Eventually, when we completely purify our mind, we will experience a completely pure world. In this retreat, we will learn about and begin to practice purifying our mind.

How to transform your life

January 1th - 7th



Find inner peace and lasting happines.
Easy practices for daily life.

In How to Transform Your Life, a free eBook download, the author, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, says:
'This book presents many profound methods of spiritual training, all of which are practical ways to purify and control our mind. If we put these methods into practice we will definitely gain a special experience of mental peace. By continuing to improve this experience, deluded states of mind will gradually diminish and our inner peace will grow. Eventually, by abandoning delusions altogether, we will attain the supreme permanent inner peace of nirvana. Having overcome our own delusions, such as anger, attachment and ignorance, and developed profound spiritual realizations of universal love, compassion, concentration and wisdom, our ability to help others will be far greater. In this way we can help others solve their problems not just for a few days or a few years, but for ever. We can help them discover an inner peace and joy that nothing, not even death, can destroy. How wonderful!'
