Many people have the compassionate wish to benefit others, but few understand how to accomplish this successfully in daily life. A Bodhisattva is a friend of the world who, motivated by compassion, seeks enlightenment to benefit all living beings. Bodhisattvas have such strong compassion that they are able to transform all their daily activities into ways of benefiting others.
“Nowadays, with the world in turmoil, there is a particular need for Westerners to cultivate bodhichitta. If we are to make it through these perilous times, true Bodhisattvas must appear in the West as well as the East”. Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
On this very special five-day silent retreat Resident Teacher Kadam Mick Marcon will explain and guide a series of meditations leading us to the precious mind of Bodhichitta
