“The wise, established in virtue,
Develop consciousness and understanding
Succeed in disentangling the tangle.”
According to Buddhist teaching, to go beyond the problems of living we need to go to the root of all problems. The root is ignorance, and the tangle is the network of craving.
The way out of the tangle lies in developing understanding aligned with ethical living. What do we need to understand? Basically, we need to understand ourselves, which means principally mind and thought.
How can that come about? Through listening, reflecting and meditation.
What else do we need? Compassion.
In our retreat we will explore the fundamental issue in the light and practice of Buddha dharma.
The daily program will consist of teachings, sitting and walking meditation as well as some discussion.
