Infinite Possibilities, Centre Away Retreat: Friday 15th March – Sunday 17th March – held Tara KMC
Everyone is welcome to enjoy a relaxing, peaceful and inspiring weekend in the company of Sangha, (spiritual friends) at Tara Kadampa Meditation Centre.
Founded in 1984 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Tara Centre is 1.5 hours north of Cheltenham. Set in 38 acres with mature gardens, beautiful meditation rooms, and cafe, it is a major centre of the New Kadampa Tradition, in the UK. For more details about the centre go to: tara.org
During the retreat we take ourself away from the distractions of daily life and develop concentration on meaningful objects; understanding and experience naturally develop. This year we will spend time exploring the wisdom of emptiness, the essence of Buddhadharma.
Je Tsongkhapa said:
The knowledge of emptiness is superior to any other knowledge,
The Teacher who teaches emptiness unmistakenly is superior to any other teacher,
And the realisation of emptiness is the very essence of Buddhadhamra.
