The inner peace of refuge
KMC Canada recently enjoyed an Inner Peace Meditation Retreat with Gen-la Khyenrab, who is the Resident Teacher and National Spiritual Director for Canada.
Gen-la emphasised the importance of appreciating our precious human life, saying it is immensely precious and meaningful only if we use it to improve spiritually and attain the supreme inner peace and happiness of liberation and enlightenment.
The retreat ended with a Mahayana Refuge Ceremony at which Gen-la granted refuge vows giving some the opportunity to take them for the first time and others an opportunity to renew and strengthen their vows. Clearly it was a powerful life-changing experience for many.
