URBAN Refuge Retreat

July 22, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - July 23, 2023 @ 8:00 pm

R45.00 – R300.00

You don’t need to leave the city to find peace and refuge.

 

This retreat provides a special opportunity to explore and deepen our mind of Refuge, which is the actual protection from pain and problems.

 

At the moment we may be free from physical suffering and mental pain, but this freedom is only temporary. What we really need is permanent liberation from all suffering, and we can only accomplish this by practising Buddha’s teachings, which is the actual method to solve all of our problems.

Buddha is the doctor who provides us with the medicine of Dharma and encourages us to take it, and Sangha are the pure spiritual practitioners who inspire us to practice. These are the three jewels of Refuge, to which we turn for both temporary and ultimate protection.

 

Through developing our practice of Refuge, we will gain confidence and strength to make authentic spiritual progress on the path to enlightenment. In this way we can fulfil the real meaning of our precious human life, and become a source of peace and happiness for all living beings.

 

If you are new to this practice it is recommended that you join the introductory talk on Saturday afternoon, when Gen Jampel will explain the practice and give some guidance on how to make the best of your retreat experience.

 

The following retreat sessions will consist of prayers and guided meditations.
