Friday evening 21 April - Introductory Talk.

Saturday 22 April - White Tara Empowerment & Commentary: Increase your lifespan, wisdom & good fortune.

During this special Dharma Celebration, Gen Kelsang Rabten will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha White Tara, who bestows long life, wisdom and good fortune.

Through receiving this empowerment and engaging in the practice of White Tara our own good qualities will be awakened so that we will become like her.

We need a long life to complete our spiritual practice. We need wisdom to free our self and others from our daily problems and suffering and we need good fortune or positive energy to achieve a long lasting experience of inner peace and happiness.

Teachings & Retreat - Free the Mind. Find happiness by breaking the chains of attachment.

Sunday 23 April - Teachings:
Attachment is the rope that binds us to a life of suffering. It keeps us investing our energy in things that can’t give us the real lasting peace and happiness we crave. Our attachment keeps us locked in unhealthy mental habit patterns, repeating mistakes that undermine our personal growth.

Monday 24 April - Retreat:
On this retreat, Gen Rabten will give teachings and lead the meditations Buddha taught that free our mind from attachment and allow us to enjoy a life of real fulfilment.

You can attend the whole celebration or part of it.
