Spring Going for Refuge Weekend | Going Forth and Commitment

Friday, 18 March 2022 to Sunday, 20 March 2022

This ordination training weekend will culminate in the sending forth ceremony of those men who have been invited to attend the 2022 Guhyaloka ordination retreat.

To provide an inspirational background for this ceremony, we will be exploring the crucial themes of Going Forth, renunciation, striving and commitment. We will do this by exploring two of the oldest Buddhist texts from the life of the Buddha: the suttas on Going Forth and the Striving.

Fully Booked
This retreat is now fully booked. Please contact the Guest Master on info@padmaloka.org.uk to reserve a place on the waiting list.

The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at around 2:30pm.
