Parting from the Four Attachments

Meditation Retreat with Khenpo Sherab Sangpo

Retreat Topic: Khenpo Sherab Sangpo will offer teachings and guided meditation on Parting from the Four Attachments, a short teaching spoken by Mañjuśrī to the Sakya patriarch, Sachen Kunga Nyingpo:

If you are attached to this life, you are not a true spiritual practitioner.

If you are attached to saṃsāra, you do not have renunciation.
If you are attached to your own self-interest, you have no bodhicitta.

If there is grasping, you do not have the view.

When: Saturday, 1/18/20 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Registration opens at 8:30 AM. Please arrive by 8:45 AM and be seated by 9:00 AM.

Teachings, guided meditation and time for your questions will alternate with breaks for tea and vegetarian lunch. Teachings are open to all. Please join us.
