Heart Sutra Silent Retreat - March 22-24, 2019

The Manjushri Dharma Center is pleased to host a three-day retreat at the beautiful Sambosa Three Jewels temple in Carmel Valley. Venerable Khenpo Karten Rinpoche, Manjushri Dharma Center's resident lama, will give instructions on The Heart Sutra, one of the most precious teachings in all of Buddhism. The retreat will also include daily chanted prayers of Amitabha Buddha (the Buddha of Infinite Light) and the opportunity to receive or renew Bodhisattva vows (vows to help others and reduce harm). Rinpoche has requested that this be a silent retreat, which means trying to limit any talking to essential communications only. In advance of the retreat, Rinpoche has requested that, if you are able, please read "Essence of the Heart Sutra", by His Holiness the Dalai Lama - Wisdom Publications, 2002.
