Get Inspired & Invigorated!!!

Introduction to Buddhism Course

Weekend retreat - 31st July, 1st & 2nd August

This course will cover an overview of the fundamental philosophy & psychology of the Buddhist path, what we normally call the Lam Rim.

We will discuss the graduated staircase of the different stages of mind training and mind transformation towards the cultivation of positive & altruistic states of mind.

During this course we will cover topics such as:

  • Precious Human Rebirth
  • Death & Impermanence
  • Karma
  • The four noble truths
  • Bodhichitta (the ultimate good heart)
  • Wisdom (the correct view of reality)

The retreat will have moments of Silence.

 “The practice of the three principal aspects of the path is the most important thing. This is the most important, more important than a job, money, or anything else in our life. It is the most important thing.” Lamopa Rinpoche.
