Daylong Teaching Retreat “The Four Dharmas of Gampopa”
June 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Immediately after our regularly scheduled Saturday morning meditation session on June 8, we will hold a day of teaching and meditation.
Our teacher, Khenpo Karten Rinpoche will be giving an explanation of the “Four Dharmas of Gampopa”, a prayer we frequently recite at MDC. This will be followed by a session of meditation in the afternoon, and will be offered as a silent retreat to help focus the mind onto the importance of these teachings.
Gampopa, the author of The Jewel Ornament of Liberation, was the heart disciple of Milarepa and a revered practitioner and meditator in the Kagyu lineage.
This text by him, “The Four Dharmas of Gampopa”, succinctly offers a complete guide to practice for practitioners and leads us through the gradual path to liberation. This teaching is precious. This is a special opportunity.
Please bring a bag lunch to enjoy. Snacks and tea will be available throughout the day.
Suggested donation: $40 for the general public, $25 for students and those with limited income. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds. All are welcome!
