Take a week-long vacation with
Manjushri, Buddha of Wisdom,
and Ven. Thubten Chodron
In person only
Ven. Thubten Chodron leads the Abbey’s annual one-week deity retreat focusing on Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom.
Manjushri is the manifestation of the wisdom of all the Buddhas. The practice of Manjushri is especially effective for eliminating confusion, generating wisdom, and enhancing compassion, love, and bodhicitta. By helping us to overcome our self-centeredness and ignorance, this practice enables us to open our hearts to others with wisdom, joy, and strength.
Venerable Chodron will also continue teaching from Nagarjuna”s “Letter to a Friend.” She uses the Padmakara Group’s translation, or you can access Alex Berzin’s translation. Prepare for this year’s teachings by watching the playlist of previous teachings here.
The course includes meditations, teachings, and group discussion.
You must be fully vaccinated and boosted to attend in person.
