Course Dates: 15th February 2013, 07:00 pm - 17th February 2013, 02:00 pm

This Buddhist meditation retreat weekend builds on from the popular course “Walking a Path to Spiritual Bliss”, although this is not a prerequisite to attending 
A Compassionate Heart.

Through great demand from her students, Victoria brings the teachings of Bodhichitta to Lendrick Lodge in an accessible practical way.

The Sanskrit term Bodhisattva is the name given to anyone who, motivated by great compassion has generated bodhichitta, which is a spontaneous 
wish to attain Buddhahood for the benefit of all living beings.

We can apply these teachings to our daily life in order that we may become free from our delusional mind (anger, impatience, pride, jealousy, ignorance and desirous attachment). These states of minds are the root of all our suffering and difficulties. It is easy to forget that our true nature can be likened to the fact that above the clouds, blue sky is always present. We contain the seeds of great compassion and wisdom. The clouds are the delusional mind. When we work with this knowledge, the clouds are dissolved and our true nature shines out for 
the entire world to see. A nature of love, peace, wisdom and compassion.

In this weekend you will study;

  • The benefits of Bodhichitta- my favourite being that “your mind becomes a source of peace and happiness for all living beings”
  • How to develop Bodhichitta
  • An introduction in how to engage in Bodhisattvas actions
  • The first three of the six perfections, giving, moral discipline, and patience, recognising that these become part of your daily practice
  • Revision of karma, the preciousness of this human life and the delusional mind
  • Meditations and mantra singing

Victoria is in her fifth year of studying Mahayana Buddhism

As a dedicated student of this lineage it is a privilege to share this lineage of Buddhism as a way of improving others and our lives in to this modern age.
