Venerable Thubten Chodron


♦ Buddhism: One Teacher, Many Traditions

A residential retreat in English with Venerable Thubten Chodron

Thursday, April 16, to Sunday, April 19

In this long weekend retreat, Venerable Thubten Chodron’s respectful approach will illuminate the many ways that all forms of Buddhism, amid their rich diversity, share a common heritage and common goals.

In this course you’ll strengthen your knowledge and practice of Buddhism by understanding its varied traditions—how they came to be, what makes them different from each other, and what they have in common.

What you’ll learn:

  • The common ground underlying the diverse expressions of the Buddha’s teachings.
  • The origins of the various Buddhist traditions, and how they spread across Asia.
  • How the Four Noble Truths are understood in the different traditions.
  • Ethical training for lay people and monastics.
  • And much more.

Suggested donation to offset our costs: € 195
The course includes coffee, tea and vegetarian meals and overnight accommodation incl. bed linen and towel.
On 18.30 Thursday evening, a simple dinner with soup and bread is served.
