Deepen your understanding of emptiness by immersing yourself in this silent retreat held at Kadampa Meditation Center. By observing silence we enhance our opportunity to turn our attention inwards and focus on our meditation practice. Gen Chonden & Gen Norbu will each give teachings and guide meditations on Buddha’s most profound teaching, emptiness, based on Geshe Kelsang’s recent book ‘The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra’. Everyone is welcome to participate in this retreat, regardless of experience. This is a wonderful way to gain a deeper experience of emptiness, and cultivate a special wisdom to destroy the root of all our problems, self grasping ignorance.
