Introduction Talk | SATURDAY 9–10:30am with Gen Kelsang Ingchug

We all try to find happiness by improving our external conditions. However, we can see clearly that instead of making us happy, focusing on external conditions only increases suffering, dissatisfaction, and fear in the world. It is time to seek happiness from a different source.

In this retreat, we will focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit (positive energy) by making mandala offerings and receiving blessings through the practice of Guru Yoga. In this way, we can realize our deepest wish to experience lasting happiness.

Everyone is welcome to attend any part of this retreat. Following Saturday morning’s teaching, all sessions will be self-guided.
