Meditation on Bodhicitta, “Mindfulness Training in the Ways of Bodhicitta”

January 7 - 7:00 pm to January 14 - 1:30 pm



Geshe La will lead us to this 7 day retreat on how to maintain mental peace, meditation and teachings. We will practice  how to understand profound view of Buddhist Philosophy.

“You can prove scientifically that bodhicitta is the best practice to do. Our self-cherishing thought is the root of all human problems. It makes our lives difficult and miserable. The solution to self-cherishing, its antidote, is the mind that is its complete opposite – bodhicitta. The self-cherishing mind is worried about only me, me – the self-existent I. Bodhicitta substitutes others for self”.

“The best Dharma practice,
the most perfect, most substantial,
is without doubt
the practice of bodhicitta.”

Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) is an organization devoted to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values worldwide through teaching, meditation and community service.


Our summer retreats consist of teachings from Geshe La, meditation, discussion sessions and questions, answers.
