Residential Retreat ‘Living Compassionately’

With Tempa Dukte Lama

Sat. Feb. 24, 10am through Sun. Feb 25, 2pm
McKeever Environmental Learning Center, Sandy Lake, PA

The practice of a compassionate being rests in the recognition that ultimately, everyone is Buddha. This true nature of all beings is called our primordial purity. It is the basis of our spiritual path. The recognition of this true nature is the basis of the inexhaustible love and compassion of awakened beings.

In this Retreat we will explore the six awakened qualities that help us actualize this recognition and express it in all our actions. These qualities, called the Perfections, are the practice of generosity, wholesome action, patience, effort, mindfulness, and wisdom. These qualities are the skillful means of a compassionate being to meet the needs of the self and others. They are the manifestation of compassion in our everyday life. In this Retreat we will explore how we can cultivate and live these qualities.
