Urban Purification Retreat
Friday December 11 to Sunday December 13
About this Event (Online or In Person)
Everyone wishes to be free from problems and suffering and spiritual practitioners wish to gain spiritual realizations quickly and easily. Buddha teaches that the main cause of a problem-filled life is negative karma and the main obstacle to our Dharma practice are imprints from our past mistakes. The method to eliminate negative karma from our mental continuum is the practice of purification.
In this weekend retreat we will engage in the practice of mantra recitation of the Buddha Vajrasattva, who is the Wisdom Buddha appearing in a special aspect to help us purify negativity. Through deep and sincere meditation and recitation we will accomplish strong purification of our mind. We will leave retreat feeling significantly lighter and spiritually “fit.” It will be like a spa for inner wellness.
All teachings and meditations will be suitable for everyone, with no experience or extensive practise.
