The Manjushri Dharma Center is pleased to host a three-day retreat at the beautiful Sambosa Three Jewels temple in Carmel Valley. Khenpo Karten Rinpoche, Manjushri Dharma Center’s resident lama, will give instructions on The Heart Sutra, one of the most precious teachings in all of Buddhism. The retreat will also include daily chanted prayers of Amitabha Buddha (the Buddha of Infinite Light) and the opportunity to receive or renew Bodhisattva vows. Rinpoche has requested that this be a silent retreat, sometimes called full silence or noble silence. This means trying to limit any talking to essential communications only, and will start after Friday dinner continuing until the start of lunch on Sunday. In advance of the retreat, Rinpoche has requested that, if you are able, please read “Essence of the Heart Sutra”, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama – Wisdom Publications, 2002.

In addition, Rinpoche has written a text for the retreat:  Essence of the Heart Sutra in Brief

The formal retreat will go from dinner on Friday, March 22, until after lunch on Sunday, March 24. If you can, plan to arrive around 4 PM on Friday for sleeping assignment and settling in. Retreat will end around 2 pm after our Annual Sangha Meeting held right after Sunday lunch.
