“The visualised figure before you; the figure of a Buddha, the figure of a Bodhisattva, sublime and glorious though it may be, is, in fact, you – is the new you – you as you will be if only you allow yourself to die.”
A System of Meditation, Sangharakshita
At the time of ordination within the Triratna Buddhist Order, we are introduced to the visualization and mantra recitation of the Buddha or Bodhisattva with whom we have a profound connection. The form of this practice is called sadhana.
On this post-ordination retreat we will be exploring in depth and detail the essential elements of sadhana, including the approach to sadhana, the stages of sadhana, the fulfilment of sadhana and sadhana in daily life as the wholehearted expression of the Dharmacharya.
Details and Timings
The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.
