3-Day Dharmachari Retreat 2024

The Domain of the Bodhisattva
Thursday, 3 October 2024 to Sunday, 6 October 2024

Not the domain of the worldly and not the domain of the saint, such is the domain of the bodhisattva.
Vimalakirti Nirdesha

This retreat will be devoted to Vimalakirti's astonishing exposition on the Domain of the Bodhisattva. Following Sangharakshita's lectures on the Vimalakirti Nirdesha, we will explore such mysteries and wonders as the sicknesses of Bodhisattvas, Bhante's insights into the mutual perfuming of Suchness, and what we might do to practise these profound teachings. Above all, we will contemplate Bhante's description of the Bodhisattva as "a living contradiction".
