5 days Meditation Retreat & Teachings on Calm-abiding with Lama Samten
Time & Location
About the Event
Welcome to all to this wonderful opportunity to do a 5 days Meditation Retreat and Teachings on Calm-abiding Meditation in Toronto!
For the 5 days of the program, the schedule is the same : 2 sessions in the morning, 2 sessions in the afternoon, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, including breaks and time for lunch. Each session lasts about 1h15, including teachings, meditation and time for questions.
The teachings are following the same tradition as H.H. Dalaï-Lama on how to attain calm-abiding mind according to Buddhist philosophy teachings. It is well known that the primary purpose of the Buddha's teaching is to attain happiness of enlightenment by practicing two forms of meditation : concentration meditation and analytical meditation. The first aims at achieving calm-abiding (samatha), while the second aims to gaining special insight (vipashyana).
Our calm-abiding meditation sessions are meant for beginners as well as for more advanced meditators. Although our groups are mostly made up of first-time meditators, there are also those who have already practiced meditation and are seeking another technique. There are as well those who wish to take the course for the second or third time in order to improve their meditative skills. In this retreat are given all the fundamental elements necessary to attain calm-abiding according to Buddha's teachings : the preparations, the posture, the necessary conditions, the hindrances and how to overcome them, etc.
Lama Samten is a great master in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He studied and trained as a monk in Gaden Jangtse, one of the greatest Buddhist Monastic University, for almost 20 years. Since he completed his studies, he shares his knowledge and wisdom with everybody interested in Canada and Europe since 20 years.
