Parting from the Four Attachments

August 21, 2021 - 9:30 am to August 22, 2021 - 5:00 pm


In this essential text , by the great Sakya master Sachen Kunga Nyingbo, Geshe la will take us through this mind training of parting from the attachments.

“Anyone longing to seek the supreme great bliss of nirvana must part from the four attachments”.

Our Resident Teacher Geshe Tharchin’s well known laughter and friendly style of teaching welcomes all levels of practitioners

from different backrounds. Join in no experience needed. Our weekend retreats include meditation and teachings, there is always time for questions and interaction

with the Teacher. This retreat will have times of morning silence. No devices during the day!

If you cling to this life, you are not a practitioner;
If you cling to the three realms, that is not renunciation;
If you cling to self·interest, you are not a bodhisattva;
If grasping arises, it is not the view.
