Explore the meaning and purpose of life. Get to know yourself and discover deeper insight into reality. Connect with our heart of kindness and learn how to live fully. Our annual retreat offers an opportunity to listen, contemplate, meditate and embrace each moment for the benefit of ourselves and others.
We usually take our life for granted. If we want to find the meaning and purpose of our life, to discover deeper insight into reality, and in order to live our lives fully, we need to Be Wise and Go Kind.
Along with all of the unprecedented difficulties we experienced over the past year, we also may have found ourselves, on occasion, surprised by the strength of our resilience. In this years’ online retreat we explored how to bring resilience on the path with a sense of joy. Though the ‘live’ retreat took place from 2-4 April, it is possible till April 11th to view the sessions with the recordings.
Would we have made it to this day without an inner resilience? Can we strengthen this resilience further by inviting joy to become a part of our path, even though we can’t see clearly what lies ahead? Does cultivating kindness and a loving intention help us connect more naturally with fearlessness?
During this program offered by Nalandabodhi International, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche and other Nalandabodhi teachers provide us with inspired guidance and practical tools of contemplation, mindfulness, and insight to explore these questions and deepen our appreciation, joy, and resilience in ways that we can share throughout our day-to-day lives.
Teachings are in English and also available with translation into Chinese, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
Nalandabodhi is an international Buddhist community offering the timeless wisdom and boundless compassion of the Buddha to inspire individuals and create kind communities in today’s world.
We emphasize working with our minds and hearts through the teachings of the Buddha.
In particular, we approach the dharma, the Buddha’s teachings, as a “science of mind” through the three paths of study, meditation, and mindful activity. In this way, we are invited to ask questions, explore, and experiment with the methods ourselves.
