About the Event
This Retreat will be held in Leclercville, between Montreal and Quebec city, at Paramita Retreat Centre. Lama Samten 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.
This book will be used during the retreat : https://www.buddhistmeditationtoronto.org/product-page/practice-in-four-daily-sessions-of-the-preparatory-practices
Arrival is on October 24th before 7h00 PM, and the retreat will end on October 29th after lunch.
People will come from Toronto and Montreal, so probably it will be possible to have car-sharing for those who need.
We hope that we will be able to hold it, wishing the government rules at this time will allow us to hold it.
Fee : 435$ (including private room, meals and the retreat)
* There is a 10$ reduction if you pay by e-transfer or by check
If you have a friend you want to share the room with, the price is little lower per person. Please contact us for details.
