Vajrasattva Purification Retreat

Everyone wants to be happy all the time, but often our past comes back to obstruct our present happiness. Buddha taught the main obstacle to making progress in the spiritual path is negative karma and the main cause of our suffering is our negative actions from the past. In this retreat, we will remove obstacles from our mind quickly  – leaving us refreshed, clean, and happy.

Amitayus Retreat

There’s nothing more precious to us than our life. Because we have a precious human life, we have the opportunity to experience both temporary and ultimate happiness. We need a long life. If we lose this life, we shall lose the opportunity to practice Dharma and attain liberation and enlightenment.

What is Kadampa Buddhism?

Modern Kadampa Buddhism is a special, systematic presentation of Buddha’s teachings particularly suited for contemporary society. This presentation preserves the meaning and intention of Buddha’s original teachings while making them clear and practical in a way that anyone can easily understand and put into practice.


"Everyone, both Buddhist and non-Buddhist, needs permanent liberation from suffering, and pure and everlasting happiness.”

– from the book Modern Buddhism by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
