THURSDAY, June 4 | 9AM–5PM

We have all tried to find happiness by improving material things and external conditions, but instead of making us happy, improving external conditions has only increased the suffering, dissatisfaction, and fear in the world. We can see this very clearly. From our side, therefore, we need to seek happiness from a different source.

We all wish for spiritual realizations, pathways to pure happiness, but these depend upon creating certain inner conditions such as purifying negativity, accumulating merit, and receiving blessings.

In this retreat, we focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit, or positive energy, by making mandala offerings and receiving blessings by engaging in Guru Yoga practice. This is a special practice that enables us to strengthen our connection with our Spiritual Guide. In this way, we can realize our deepest wish to experience lasting happiness. 

This retreat is guided by Gen Kelsang Chokyi. Suitable for those who have experience with Kadampa Buddhism and would like to deepen their experience.
