Sangharakshita has likened the Triratna Buddhist Order to, and even identified it with, the eleven-headed and thousand-armed Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of compassion. He says of that identification that it is ‘Not just a manner of speaking, it’s not just a figure of speech. We should take it very seriously, even take it literally’.
On this retreat we will explore the Bodhisattva Ideal and how it can be ever more fully and deeply lived out in our Order and community.
The retreat takes place between the 14th to the 21st of May and is open for men who’ve asked for ordination and Dharmacaris.
In preparation for the retreat, please listen to and make notes on Bhante's Lecture Series on the Bodhisattva Ideal (The Lecture series on freebuddhistaudio is called "Aspects of the Bodhisattva Ideal").
