Sunday, April 2 – Saturday, April 8, 2017
During this retreat we will spend time developing the beautiful mind of refuge, our actual protection
from pain and problems. Through practicing refuge, we gradually build a stablepeace, joy and freedom within our own heart, giving us the confidence and strength to make authentic spiritual progress that we can then share with others.
We attain permanent freedom from suffering by sincerely relying upon the Three Jewels: Buddha - the source of all refuge; Dharma - the realization of Buddha’s teachings; and Sangha - pure Dharma practitioners who help us with our spiritual practice. Dharma is like medicine that prevents the sufferings of samsara, Buddha is the doctor who gives us this medicine, and the Sangha are the nurses who assist us. Understanding this, we go for refuge to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
