Prajnaparamita – Heart Sutra, Profundity & Clarity Retreat
Whether you attended the International Spring Festival or not, you can enjoy some special days in an inspiring environment.
Based on teachings from the Spring Festival at Manjushri KMC, Gen Gomchen will guide a weekend retreat, integrating Buddha’s profound Heart Sutra teachings with tantric methods. Through training our mind in the wisdom of ultimate truth we can ripen our Buddha nature and attain the inner peace of enlightenment.
Great Mother Prajnaparamita
Great Mother Prajnaparamita is a female Buddha who is the manifestation of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom. Her function is to overcome maras – the outer and inner obstructing demons – and to bestow the realization of the higher perfection of wisdom.
Training in the union of Sutra and Tantra
Following Venerable Geshe Kelsang’s explanation in The New Heart of Wisdom, we will learn how to apply Buddha’s teachings from the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra to Tantric meditation on self-generation
Gen Kelsang Gomchen
