Ken Holmes – Retreat at Susurumba, Nyanga – Nov 10-14, 2014

Retreat topic: “The Mahamudra prayer for everyday living and developing great self-awareness and compassion”

Much of Buddhism is concerned with ethical living and an accompanying groundwork on thoughts and emotions. These improve everyday life but they neither take us to enlightenment nor make clear what it was Buddha actually achieved or how far meditation can take us. This prayer, by the 3rd Karmapa, gives an overview of some of the deeper teachings of the Kagyu lineage.

Ken Holmes is currently Director of Studies at Kagyu Samye Ling and is a world renowned scholar on Tibetan Buddhism. His life is spent teaching in the Samye Dzong Buddhist Centers established by the late Akong Tulku Rinpoche, in various countries, writing and translating dharma works. We are delighted to have Ken back for another round of inspiring teachings.

Dates: Monday 10th November 2014 commencing 6.00 p.m. (suggestion arrival 2.00 – 4.00 p.m.) to Friday 14th November 2014 mid-morning.
