The lineage of Prajnaparamita begins with a wordless realisation of Emptiness which is then embodied in the person of the Goddess.
The Mandala that then patterns out reveals the Naga King and Princess, the practices associated with Perfect Wisdom like Chöd and the Prajnaparamita Sadhana, and many texts, such as the Prajnaparamita Sutras, praises of the Goddess from the 2nd Century, Tantric Prajnaparamita texts, and mantras and dharanis. Not to mention figures like Manjusri, various Dakinis and Machig Lapdron
There will be more week long retreats over the Summer if interest continues.
The Virtual Vihara. 21 November 2020 to 20 February 2021.
A long home retreat for Order members wishing to deepen their practice in community. With a similar programme to the current retreats: meditation sessions three times a day, sometimes with a talk, ending with an appropriate ritual. Everyone gets on with their own practice and can use the situation however they find helpful. There are practice reviews available. Group teachings will emerge from individuals’ practice as the retreat progresses. It will be possible to form small kulas within the main group for special interests and teaching. Retreatants must commit either to the whole three month period, or one period either side of Xmas.
