Snow Mountain Retreat
In the footsteps of Shantideva
A meditation retreat based on Shantideva`s Guide to the Bodhisattvas`s Way of Life and its commentary Meaningful to Behold. A Bodhisattva is a person who, motivated by great compassion, has developed a spontaneous wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living beings. This retreat gives us the opportunity to train in the Bodhisattva’s way of life through meditating on the six perfections. In this way we can become a true friend of the world and lead a joyful and beneficial life.
“Nowadays, with the world in turmoil, there is a particular need for Westerners to cultivate bodhichitta. If we are to make it through these perilous times, true Bodhisattvas must appear in the West as well as in the East.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
