Inner Light of Wisdom

ENJOYING THE CLARITY OF OUR MIND IN MONTSERRAT MOUNTAINS

PR_Gen-Dargyay-Barcelona-15

Last week, KMC Barcelona organized a post-festival retreat based on the NKT Summer Festival teachings at the beautiful Montserrat temple located in the outskirts of Barcelona. The retreat was guided by Gen Kelsang Darguey, resident teacher at IKRC Menorca, who provided teachings suitable for practitioners of all experience levels.

Gen Kelsang Darguey first shared practical advice on how to overcome distractions when meditating on the clarity of the mind and explained the benefits of meditating on the root mind. The teachings then focused on understanding the three root delusions — anger, attachment, and ignorance.

During the meditations, participants learned to observe how these temporary minds arise from and eventually dissolve into the root mind. By the end, everyone enjoyed the benefits of this meditation, feeling calmer and refreshed, as well as more focused and mindful.

We thank all the people who participated, especially our precious teacher, the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who provides us with these wonderful opportunities to delve into the valuable teachings transmitted in international festivals.
