WRC Bodhisattva Course with DW Teachers

Where: Western Retreat Center
When: Friday September 15 - Sunday September 17

Dear Friends!

Please join us at WRC on September 15-17 for the weekend of meditations and panels with DW Teachers.

“We are on the Bodhisattva path - it means that we do everything for the benefit of others. Liberation is not the goal of our Bodhisattva work. The real goal is to give all we can for the benefit of beings, and in the very end we get the ultimate gift of Enlightenment. We are Bodhisattvas - the more we do for others, the less we want and have to do for ourselves. But we don't strive for our goal on our own - we go the way together. Similar to an organism, we're all connected with each other, and every time one of us reaches a certain quality, immediately there are friends that offer support and help, and by doing this, they get pulled forward themselves. We stand together, not alone, and we're well on the way." ~ Lama Ole Nydahl

The deep meaning of our Lama’s words can be easily experienced at WRC, where “powerful activity removes all impurities”. We all bring our combination of different qualities and together we discover our richness.
