4-6 Feb. | Away Retreat
Bliss & Emptiness
With Gen Kelsang Namkhyen
On this retreat we learn about the union of great bliss and emptiness, which is also called Mahamudra. When through the force of meditation our mind transforms into great bliss and this mind realizes emptiness directly, this is the union of great bliss and emptiness, the actual realization of Mahamudra. It is said that when we attain this we will definitely become enlightened in this life. By doing this retreat you will gain some (more) familiarity with the instructions given in the book The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
The retreat is held at Goedgedacht Farm which is located on the mountain slopes of the picturesque Riebeek Valley, only an hour from the metropolis of Cape Town. Set in natural surroundings, amidst panoramic olive grove and mountain views, the Goedgedacht Farm provides the perfect setting for a truly magical experience.
