Buddha Vajrapani – The Power of Compassion

with guest teacher, Gen-la Kelsang Thubten

Following on from the International Spring Festival at Manjushri KMC, UK, Gen-la Kelsang Thubten will guide a retreat based on the teachings and commentaries given. We will gain familiarity, through meditation and contemplation, of the profound practice of Buddha Vajrapani and how we can develop and extend our compassion to all living beings and draw closer to enlightenment ourself. This is a wonderful opportunity to deepen our understanding and insight in qualified retreat conditions at Kailash International Retreat Centre.

1. Part 1: Thurs 28 – Sun 31 May, 2020

2. The whole retreat: Thurs 28 May – Wed 3 June, 2020

Please note that each retreater will help with a merit job in order to ensure the smooth running of the retreat. Thank you.

Compassion is a powerful way to purify our mind. If our mind is pure, the objects of our mind are also pure. We shall experience everything - our environment, enjoyments, body, and mind - as pure. With a pure mind we can see holy beings such as Buddhas and Bodhisattvas directly."
— Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

teacher

We are delighted to welcome Gen-la Kelsang Thubten to Kailash IRC.  Gen-la Thubten teaches internationally and is renowned for his ability to present the  many deep meanings contained within Venerable Geshe-la’s books and to show how to integrate them into daily life.
