THE LOVE OF BEAUTY – A Meditation Retreat in Nature

A Weekend Retreat at Ratna Ling

“The natural environment supports deepening our inner life. From each tree and flower, we can learn how to receive nourishment through the senses and allow the nectar of sensory beauty to fill the heart to overflowing.”
-Tarthang Tulku, Lotus Mandala.

Take a breath of fresh air, and let the beauty of nature inspire your inner beauty. In this retreat, we will explore the beauty of trees, plants, animals, the sky.

While Bodhicitta is often translated literally as ‘enlightenment mind,’ it is not related to thoughts. Bodhicitta is universal goodness that never fails. It has the power to dispel all obstacles; it cannot be manipulated by the Marayas, and its light cannot be diminished or destroyed. Its blessings illuminate our minds and lift us out of the confining realms of samsara.

Through prayer and meditation, we will exercise our capacities to connect more quickly with blessings and move ourselves up to the gates of enlightenment.
