Vajraloka Retreats

Retreat Title: The Ocean of True Meaning (Order retreat)

Led by Vessantara

‘The Ocean of True Meaning’ is one of the great classic Buddhist meditation texts. This Tibetan practice manual written by Wangchug Dorje, the Ninth Karmapa, in the sixteenth century, goes deeply into the practicalities of the whole path to Awakening.

Following on from the successful retreats on this text here in previous years, Vessantara will continue and deepen his exploration of the shamatha and vipashyana sections, unpacking their riches and how they can enhance the main Order practices, through teaching and guided meditations. This retreat is suitable both for those who have attended in previous years and those who have not.

Vessantara worked with the essence of this material during a three–year retreat in France in 2008–2011 and has continued to study and practise it in the years since.
