  • Taking the Meaning to Heart

    In this Retreat Gen Kelsang Demo will give teachings and guide meditations to help us to bring the meaning of The Request to the Lord of all Lineages Prayer deeply into our heart. This powerful prayer was composed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, it contains the entire path of Buddha Shakyamuni’s Sutra and Tantra teachings. Through contemplating and meditating on the meaning of this prayer we will mix our mind with its profound meaning and gain experience of the path to liberation and enlightenment so that we can effortlessly benefit all living beings. There is no greater meaning than this!

    This retreat follows on from our International Spring Festival. Everyone is welcome to attend. It is not necessary to attend the festival to engage in this retreat.
