Autumn Short Order Retreat - In the Realm of the Tantric Guru

Thursday, 8 October 2020 to Sunday, 11 October 2020

Urgyen Sangharakshita has described the Vajra Guru of the Tantra as “the authentic guru” or “the no-nonsense guru”, because he doesn’t mind what he does to the disciple, provided that it pushes him in the direction of direct experience and gets him away from himself. Lama Govinda characterises communication with the Tantric Guru as “the flashing forth of that all-maturing cosmogonic eros that introduces and continually supports the process of spiritual transformation.”

In this retreat, we will explore this means for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order, through talks, discussion groups, meditations and pujas and, above all, invoking the presence of the Guru.

The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at about 2.30pm.
