Post Festival Day Retreat
@ Buddha Land KMC, Keighley
Saturday 3 June, 9.30am – 5pm
In-person & Livestream
In this Retreat Gen Kelsang Paljin will be helping us understand, contemplate and meditate on the full meaning of the different verses in the Liberating Prayer. This is an opportunity for those who missed the festival to hear teachings from there and for those who did attend to deepen their understanding.
“The Liberating Prayer is not an ordinary prayer – It is like a text and has profound meaning. All Lamrim teachings – renunciation, bodhichitta, and correct view of emptiness are included in this prayer. I can say very few people understand the Liberating Prayer.” Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
