Refuge Retreat

 Refuge Retreat
Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th July

About this Retreat 

Refuge Retreat is the first  of the four great preliminary guides that we need to practice if we want to enter into Buddhism and  make progress on our spiritual path to enlightenment. Through training in sincerely going for refuge we enter the gateway to Buddhism; and training in the compassionate mind of bodhichitta we enter the gateway to the Mahayana – the main path to the state of enlightenment.

If we do not have a practice of refuge in the Three Jewels – Buddha, Dharma and Sangha – we will not enter Buddhism and this means we have no opportunity to attain permanent liberation from suffering or the supreme happiness of Enlightenment. Then we will have lost the meaning of human life.

The prayer booklet used for this retreat is Essence of Good Fortune, we have copies at KMC Plymouth or you can order your own booklet or ebooklet here.
