Join us for the Abbey's annual one-week retreat online or in person! Ven. Chodron will guide us in the Medicine Buddha practice, explaining its background and how to do the meditation. She also teaches Nagarjuna's "Letter to a Friend." The retreat will include teachings, daily practice sessions, and facilitated discussions.
Venerable Thubten Chodron gives an overview of the diversity of Buddhist traditions based on Buddhism: One Teacher Many Traditions, a book she co-authored with His Holiness the Dalai Lama. She shares excerpts from Chinese Chan masters' teachings on sudden and gradual enlightenment and buddha nature, and reflects on the similarities and differences in presentations of the path according to different Buddhist traditions.
