One way to recharge yourself is to take a short getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Here’s a good way - soak yourself in the peaceful chants of Buddha Amitabha. The renowned Tibetan monk H.E. Garchen Rinpoche who embodies great compassion leads the retreat this year. He travels tirelessly from West to East in his old age for the sole purpose of teaching the methods to take rebirth in the Pure Land.
Why is this so? Very often, people seek advice from him on their problems and issues in life. This is referred to as the arising of suffering and that suffering can be ceased with experiential and mindfulness practice based on the meditation on Buddha Amitabha. In the sessions with Rinpoche, we will be able to explore the liminal space where the limits of our capacity for compassion and renunciation mingle with the territory of pain and suffering for which we have yet to find a resolution. We will be able to explore our own path to deeper understanding and a great capacity for liberating the pain and suffering of oneself and other beings.
The insightful integration of wisdom and compassion clarifies the distinction between our suffering, thoughts, emotions, projections and the actuality. Within that clarity, we can then experience genuine compassion from within for ourselves and others. This impactful yet easy to practice method for cultivating loving kindness and wisdom-based compassion allows effective projection towards peace and well-being for the universe in return.
