Over 2,600 years ago, Buddha Shakyamuni gave teachings on how to remove the causes of all suffering and difficulties, and to reveal the essential goodness of ourselves and others. During this retreat, we will learn about the twelve deeds of the Buddha and meditate according to the Blessing Treasure: A Sadhana of the Buddha Shakyamuni by Mipham Rinpoche, as it was taught by Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche and Khentrul Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, great Nyingma masters and scholars who founded the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center which has chapters in over 20 cities in the USA, Russia, Canada, and Puerto Rico, plus monasteries in India, Russia, and at their main stateside monastery and retreat center Padma Samye Ling in upstate New York.
Suggested donation: $25 for the entire retreat or $15 a day.
