October 24 - 26
Friday Evening
- 7 - 9 pm Teachings on Story of Buddhism with a focus on the Kagyu Lineage
Saturday Morning - 10 am - 12 Guru Rinpoche Initiation
Saturday Afternoon - 2 pm - 4 Guru Rinpoche Teachings
Sunday Morning - 10 am - 12 Thoroughly Practicing Buddhism While Living Within the World
Sunday Afternoon - 2 pm - 4 Practicing correctly with Balance, without falling into two separate extremes: wasting time by entertaining one's intelligence with philosophy, or practicing without hearing Dharma correctly. When people live in front of a river but are dying of thirst, this is an example of filling up their intelligence with philosophy without genuine practice. Similarly, the other extreme is when one practices Dharma without study, this is like someone pretending to climb a tree but he doesn't have arms - this is someone without teachings but who tries to practice.
