Clarity & Wisdom - A Mahamudra Retreat
Jan 6- 12 • 2017 • KMC Vancouver
with Gen Kelsang Thekchen
Buddha's precious Mahamudra teachings reveal profound methods to gain deep inner peace and concentration by meditating on the clarity of the mind. Having gained deep concentration, we can then meditate on the ultimate nature of our mind and all of reality, profound emptiness. During this guided retreat, Gen Thekchen will explain and guide these meditations according to the instructions by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in his book The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra.
