Meditation Retreats at Ashoka Centre, Plymouth
"If we are to attain completely pure concentration we need to disengage from all worldly activities and discipline ourself to do only the things that will help us to develop and maintain a calm mind"
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
By deepening our reliance on Buddha Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, we will cleanse our mind of delusions, negativities, and obstacles. The meditation and recitation of Buddha Vajrasattva in this part silent retreat gives us the great opportunity to purify our mind quickly, so that we can make progress on the spiritual path and fulfil our inner potential.
