Special Away Retreat
Corrymeela, Ballycastle. Northern Ireland
Opening the Wisdom Eye (Fri 8th - Sun 10th April)
The more wisdom we have, the less ignorance we have; and the less ignorance we have, the less suffering we will experience. If we have wisdom there is no basis for experiencing problems. Only the mental peace that develops from wisdom is real happiness.
In this weekend retreat we will explore the wisdom that understands the ultimate nature of reality, emptiness. Because of not understanding ultimate truth, emptiness, we remain always deceived and trapped in the deep sleep of our self grasping ignorance. Due to this ignorance we develop and experience various kinds of mistaken appearance and because of this we experience various kinds of suffering and problems as hallucinations endlessly.
During this retreat we will receive teachings and meditate on the profound and blessed wisdom verses from the Request to the Lord of all Lineages prayer.This retreat will be guided by Gen Kelsang Chitta (Resident teacher of Northern Ireland) and Gen Kelsang Varahi (Resident teacher of Vajrapani Kadampa Meditation Centre Huddersfield). Through their clear and joyful guidance we will come to taste the profound peace of emptiness, deeply relaxing into this natural truth.
