Our Last Day Retreat
A few weeks ago, the popular teacher, Tenzin Peljor gave his first talk on the current topic: Mind Training: The Bodhisattva’s Ethics As a Mirror To Recognise One’s Own Mind. The day was enormously appreciated by everybody, and we are delighted that he will continue with another Day Retreat on the same topic.
People who missed the first Day Retreat in this two-part series, will be given a link during this retreat, so that they can download it and listen to the first part whenever it suits them. You are welcome to attend this Day Retreat even if you did not attended the first part.
We are pleased that Tenzin is continuing with this course. He has been generous in his time with us. We appreciate the warm relationship that we have established with him over the last few years.
A Bodhisattva is a being who strives for full awakening.
The ethics of the Bodhisattvas, encapsulated as the Bodhisattva vows, serve as excellent guidelines which make the spiritual practitioner aware of the egoistic traits, the attachments and aversions, in their mind. The ethics of a bodhisattva are like a light that illuminates that which is hidden in the dark: the blind spots. Egoistic attitudes prevent or block spiritual growth and maturation.
By understanding the mind, the practitioner gains the power to gradually change it. Through an improved self-awareness, the practitioner gains a deeper understanding of how the mind functions. Equipped with the newly gained insights, the wholesome qualities can be further cultivated. The mind then becomes rich in positive qualities. One’s understanding gains in depth and wisdom.
The course will have two parts, part one on Saturday, 8 May and part two on Saturday, 12 June.
Audio recordings will be made available for those who cannot attend both day retreats.
There will be ample room for meditation and for discussion.
Beginners are very welcome.
We have been doing stimulating monthly Day Retreats at the Helios Centre for many years. Since the pandemic, we have been conducting them online, where there have been well attended.
We have a main topic for the day and often invite guest speakers, who give talks and have open discussion groups. We have a number of meditation sessions interspersed with the discussions and breaks for lunch, tea and biscuits. Some meditation sessions will be guided. Beginners are very welcome.
The day retreat will be very much like our day retreats at Helios, but we will use the “Zoom” platform.
