Coming Under the Umbrella of Buddhism

Coming Under the Umbrella of Buddhism – Teacher Training Program (TTP) Refuge Annual Retreat

We usually try to find some stability and refuge from our unpleasant feelings by surrounding ourselves with people and things that make us feel secure, comfortable and happy. Unfortunately, these things are not permanent and they often let us down. In this meditation retreat, we will discover that only the 3 Jewels, Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, are reliable objects of refuge because they have the power to protect us permanently from the sufferings of this life and our countless future lives.

This retreat will be guided by students on the Teacher Training Program (TTP) at KMC Canada. We will use the prayers Essence of Good Fortune and Prayers for the Long Life of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. The corresponding prayer booklets can be purchased here.

More instructions on the format of the retreat will be sent by email to all the attendees. Please contact if you have not received these instructions.
