TIME FOR RETREAT 6

TRAINING THE MIND AT THE MOTHER CENTER

At Manjushri KMC, the mother center of Modern Kadampa Buddhism, the whole of January is given over to retreat. The main retreats are held in the magnificent Temple for World Peace, where Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche gave teachings and empowerments over many years. It is a very blessed environment in which to meditate.

TRAINING THE MIND
The first two weeks have been led by Gen Kelsang Rabten, Resident Teacher at KMC Brisbane and National Spiritual Director for Australasia and Southeast Asia, who has been guiding meditations on Lojong, or Training the Mind.

It has been and extraordinary retreat and many people have enjoyed deep experience of these precious meditations.

As this retreat draws to a close, we share some photos of the fortunate ones enjoying this special time at Manjushri KMC.
