vajrasattva retreat: purify your past

Meditation Retreat in English

Saturday 16th November & Sunday 17 November

10:00 – 16:30

about the retreat

Why me? This is a question we may ask ourselves when things go wrong. We spend most of our time trying to avoid problems and to find happiness. However, we still experience difficulties, this is because we cannot solve all our problems just by changing our external conditions. We need to change whatever caused the problems, which is the unskillful actions we have engaged in in the past.   

By engaging in the practice of Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, we can free ourselves from the residue of the unskillful actions (negative karma) of the past.
