ABOUT THE RETREAT

PURE MIND, PURE WORLD

DATES: 31st may – 2nd june 2019

KARMA AND THE FOUR POWERS OF PURIFICATION

(This retreat will be in spanish with simultaneous translation to english)

Retreat guided by Gen K. Sangden, National Spiritual Director of Mexico, following the Kadampa International Spring Festival 2019.

After the Kadampa International Festivals which gather thousands of people of all around the world, many Kadampa Meditation Centres (KMC) and International Retreat Centres (IRC) organize retreats in order to deepen our experience of the teachings and meditations. This year in the International Spring Festival 2019 we will receive the empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva.

* It is not necessary to have attended the festival in order to participate in this retreat.

Buddha Vajrasattva

Vajrasattva is the Buddha of Purification, embodiment of the mind of all Buddhas appearing in the aspect of a white colour Deity, and whose function is to purify the faults of sentient beings. The meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva is the most powerful method to purify our mind.

«Meditation is a scientific method to transform human nature from bad to good. Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart.»

Oral instrucions of Mahamudra. Ven. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

The purification practice of Solitary Vajrasattva

This purification practice is the supreme method to prevent future suffering and to remove our obstacles; furthermore, with this practice we can free our mind from the negative habits and tendencies which we normally identify with and improve our day-to-day life.
