A word from Geshe-la - ' For beginners in the Dharma, the most important thing is to try and integrate one's study and practice. You can see some who are only into study, only intellectual ... They have knowledge like a computer, knowing everything but nothing really touches the heart.'

 About this Course :

Among the most essential teachings in the Mahayana tradition of Buddhism are the instructions on developing bodhichitta, the aspiration to attain enlightenment for the sake of all beings. In this weekend retreat, Geshe Sherab will skillfully provide teachings on the technique to develop bodhichitta known as “equalizing and exchanging self and others” that utilizes the profound and powerful technique of tonglen, “taking and giving.” The weekend will also include guided meditations on cultivating bodhichitta accompanied by the practice of Chenrezig (Skt. Avalokiteshvara), the manifestation of the compassion of all the Buddhas.

During our precious few days together with Geshe Sherab we will have the chance to experience :

Discourse | interactive discussions |time for questions | refelction| silence| guided meditations 

We will also have a special  LOSAR Celebrations together on Saturday 17th as we welcome in 2145 Tibetan New Year of the Earth Dog.[ more details closer to the date ]

A year heralded to have  the charachteristics exemplifying honesty, integretary, flourishing, perserverance and down to earth stabilty and a loyalty to goodness - all things we wish for CTCT and community of friends to be blessed with.
