About the Event
PREREQUISITE FOR THIS URBAN RETREAT: DEEPER LAMRIM COURSE (Completed or in Process of Completing)
IN PERSON ONLY
Buddhist Monk Tenzin Gawa (Jason) will be the guide for this retreat, which will include teachings and meditation about Ngondro practice. As prerequisite, we ask that you follow the Deeper Lamrim course, or you have studied already Lamrim and are very eager to Buddhist practice.
Buddhist Teachings are of 2 categories : Sutras and Mantras. The fundamental Buddhist teachings are explained in the Sutras. They are primordial for anyone who wants to practice Buddhist philosophy and achieve more happiness. Mantra teachings are more deep and require a good understanding and integration of Sutra teachings. One needs also to prepare for Mantra teachings and enter the Vajrayana through being familiarized with the Ngondros (preparatory practices). These will be explained and practiced during this retreat.
