Adhisthana Retreats

Event Title: Avalokitesvara Sadhana

Led by Parami, Saddhaloka, Vessantara

2017 Sadhana Series: This series of sadhana retreats will be led by members of the Order that have been devoted to these particular practices for many years and based on the original practices that Sangharakshita received from his own teachers.

Drawing on early seminar material, the retreats will explore Bhante's teaching on sadhana as a direct way to cut through spiritual ignorance: ''you see things in accordance with the middle way which is the Maya way. You don't deny things as appearances, as Rupa, but you don't interpret the appearances in terms of actually existent things... They are not ultimately real, but they are perceived as though they were ultimately real. So one has got to have both. One mustn't exclude the appearance and one mustn't lose sight of the void.''

This retreat is for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order
