The theme of this post-ordination retreat is sadhana, the visualisation and mantra recitation practices received at ordination.
The meditations on the glorious, radiant figures of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas that we take up at the time of ordination are the key to realising our deepest and highest potential and all the qualities of Enlightenment. Urgyen Sangharakshita has spoken of the Buddha or Bodhisattva figure we meditate upon as 'you as you are at the end of the higher evolution'.
During the retreat, we will be exploring ways of deepening our relationship to sadhana as a means of total transformation.
The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.
