Vajraloka Retreats

Retreat Title: Radical Emptiness - in the seen, just the seen

Led by Rijumitra

The Buddha's teaching to Bahiya of the Bark Garment rings down the years ‘in the seen, there is just the seen, in the heard, just the heard, in the sensed, just the sensed and in the cognised, just the cognised’. On the spot, Bahiya became enlightened. How was this possible?

During the retreat we will retrace Bahiya's footsteps. Through meditation and dialogue, we’ll see just how prepared he was to hear the Buddha's teaching and – most important – what we can learn from this so we too can create the conditions to see what Bahiya saw.

If you want a retreat that engages with the conditions needed to cut through to the radical truth of the emptiness of things, then this is the retreat for you.

This retreat is suitable for people who have been meditating for at least 3 years
