Special weekend course with Gen-la Dekyong

Following Truth, the real meaning of going for refuge ~ Weekend course and retreat

Feb 26 – 28

with Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong

Through seeking refuge in the three precious wishfulfilling jewels Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, we can fulfil all our own wishes as well as the wishes of all living beings. If we really do not wish to experience problems and suffering we must realize emptiness, the selflessness of persons and phenomena. During this weekend course Genla Dekyong will share oral commentary received directly from Venerable Geshela to the verse by Marpa Lotsawa: 

In east India near the river Ganges
I met Venerable Maitripa, and through his great kindness
I realized that the things that I normally see do not exist.
Thus, all my experiences of problems and suffering have ceased. 

There will be an opportunity to receive the special blessings of refuge by engaging in a Mahayana Refuge Ceremony and together create powerful causes for world peace.
