Guided Vajrasattva Retreat

Fri. Dec. 11 – Sun. Dec. 13
A weekend retreat with Gen Kelsang Sanden

We spend all our time and energy trying to avoid problems by making changes to our external world. However, our unhappiness and difficulties are not caused by the external world but are the result of the negative karma we have created in the past through our own harmful actions.

By relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, we can begin to purify our negative karma. As a result, our experiences will be more and more positive, we will have a more peaceful, pure mind and we will easily remove obstacles to our spiritual development.

This live-streamed retreat will be led by special guest teacher, Gen Kelsang Sanden, resident teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Vancouver.
