Weekend Teachings "Triple Vision"Saturday 9.30am to 4.30pm and Sunday, 9.30am to 4.30pm - bookings essential.

This is the most profound and fundamental teaching of the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism as it is the Path Including Its Result. This unique teaching of Virupa, one of India's extraordinary Mahasiddhas, covers the entire Buddhist path from the time of entering the spiritual discipline up to the attainment of full and perfect enlightenment. Though it comprehensively explains the tenets of the Buddha, its main function is to serve as a manual for contemplating and meditating upon the various stages leading to the final result of liberation.

The Three Visions teaching examines the state of those experiencing suffering, those engaged in methods leading towards freedom from unhappiness, and those fully enlightened ones who have attained omniscient awakening. In a very direct and simple manner, the teachings lead one, step by step over the vast path culminating in ultimate peace. The Three Vision teaching is important to more than just the Sakya tradition, as the teachings within are relevant to Buddhists of all traditions and lineages.

Cost for the weekend retreat is: $160 or $140 member/concession, including the Teachings on Friday evening, the cost also includes lunch on both days and the offering to the teacher.  Bookings essential, book on Trybooking:
