‘If one speaks or acts with a pure mind, happiness follows like a shadow that never departs.’
‘Those who entertain such thoughts as “He abused me, he beat me, he conquered me, he robbed me,” will not still their hatred.’
The law of karma is one of the most important – and most easily misunderstood – Buddhist teachings. The first four verses of the Dhammapada can be understood in a moment but can take lifetimes to effectively put into practice. On this retreat, we will reflect on and study Subhuti’s Mind in Harmony, which explores, in great detail and in its fullness, the radical ethical responsibility of a truly Dharmic life.
The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.
