Order/Mitra Retreat with Lokeshvara

The Taste of Freedom

Friday November 11 , 7:00 pm Sunday November 13 , 3:00 pm

Fully Booked – contact office@melbournebuddhistcentre.org.au to enquire about cancellations.

Joining us from the UK to lead this retreat will be Lokeshvara, president of the MBC and friend to many in our community. The theme of this retreat will be focusing on the Buddha’s words from the Udana.

“Just as the great ocean has one taste, the taste of salt, so the Dharma-Vinaya has one taste, the taste of freedom.”

This retreat will be in the natural surroundings of the Yarra Valley. It will include meditation, communal practice, and time spent in nature. Take a break and learn about meditation, Buddhism, and yourself in a relaxed bushland setting. On retreat, we follow in the footsteps of the Buddha, leaving behind the world of technology, busyness, and the demands of modern life, entering into a different way of being with like-minded people.
