30th June – 20th July 2017
with Gen Losang Kelsang
Lamrim Retreat is a special opportunity to deepen our experience of the 14 meditations that are the condensation of all of Buddha’s teachings/presented by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso in How To Understand The Mind. By deepening our inner experience of Lamrim meditations, we can make our lives happy and meaningful, overcome our faults, solve our human problems, and ultimately find the pure and everlasting happiness of enlightenment.
Each retreat week starts on the first day with supper at 6pm followed by the introduction at 8.15pm and finishes on the last day with lunch. There will be several meditation sessions and one teaching/discussion session every day as well as a session with chanted prayers. During break times each participant helps with small jobs and there is plenty of time to go for walks and discuss the topics with other practitioners.
The retreat can also be attended by the week. Bookings for all three weeks have priority.
Part 1 : Friday 30th June to Thursday 6th July
Part 2 : Friday 7th to Thursday 13th July
Part 3 : Friday 14th to Thursday 20th July
During this course all participants observe silence in the morning until lunch. The library and meditation room are silent zones all day.
The course will be held in English, please contact us if you need translation.
Kailash IRC is a non-profit charity and the Retreat Centre, B&B and courses are all run by a few volunteers. Therefore it is common practice during an event at Kailash IRC that every participant helps with some jobs (e.g. chopping vegetables, washing dishes, tidying up etc.) and the final cleaning at the end of the course.
