“Whatever grounds there are for making merit productive of a future birth, all these do not equal a sixteenth part of the liberation of mind by loving-kindness. The liberation of mind by loving-kindness surpasses them and shines forth, bright and brilliant.”

Four Noble Truths Retreat

Tuesday, March 20 to Sunday, March 25, 2018
(5)

Register

Level: Any
What does Any mean?

Teacher: Bhante Gunaratana & Bhante Jayasara

The Four Noble Truths express the basic orientation of Buddhism: we crave and cling to impermanent states and things, which is dukkha, incapable of satisfying and painful.  This keeps us caught in samsara, the endless cycle of repeated rebirth, dukkha and dying again.  But there is a way to reach real happiness and to end this cycle, namely following the eightfold path.
The practice will include sitting, walking and standing meditation.  All retreats are considered silent retreats with the exception of Dhamma talks, question and answer periods including optional teacher interviews

Please note, if a Retreat Registration becomes active during holidays or weekends, we may not be able to ‘get back to you’ about your retreat registration request until the next business day.  Thank you for your understanding.


Registration opens at 3:00pm in the Dining Hall. Please arrive to allow enough time to complete registration here and settle in before the retreat begins. All retreats end after lunch on the last day.
Although every retreat is slightly different here is a typical retreat daily schedule.
