The Wisdom of the Heart Sutra Spring Retreat

with His Eminence Chhoje Tulku Rinpoche

April 29 - May 3, 2016
Padmasambhava Meditation Center

Please join us for five amazing days of Heart Sutra teachings and culminated with a Long Life Empowerment and Refuge/Bodhichitta Vow Ceremony. The Heart Sutra is one of the most important teachings of the Mahayana path. Although this Sutra is short in length, it’s meaning is profoundly deep and takes years of study and practice to truly understand. The subject of emptiness and interdependence are explored deeply, while also understanding how emptiness and compassion are two sides of the same coin. The first four days of the retreat will be teachings on the Heart Sutra by Chhoje Rinpoche and the last day will be a Long Life Empowerment and Refuge/Bodhichitta Vow Ceremony. Friday, April 29th: 5pm – 7pm Opening Heart Sutra Teaching Saturday April 30th 9:30am – Noon and 2-5pm Heart Sutra Teaching Sunday May 1st 9:30am – Noon and 2-5pm Heart Sutra Teaching Monday May 2nd 9:30am – Noon and 2-5pm Heart Sutra Teaching Tuesday May 3rd 9:30am – Noon and 2-5pm Long Life Empowerment and Refuge/Bodhisattva Vow Ceremony
