Guided Meditation Retreat with Silence USA New York January 2023- March 2023. Attend in Person by the weekend, week or full 10-weeks.
The 2023 Buddhist Meditation Retreats - Annual Winter Retreats at Kadampa Meditation Center New York consists of ten stand-alone weeks of Silent retreats based on The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra. Lead by Buddhist Monk Gen Samten Kelsang.
In silence, we engage with the meditation object in a more intimate way. We stop ‘chatting’ about the Dharma from our mouth and start listening to the Dharma from deep within our heart which gives us a special inner experience of the teachings we receive. Penetrating insights arise and since we are able to hold onto them with firm mindfulness we find Dharma experience pervades and nourishes our heart at a very deep level.
Gen Samten Kelsang, the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center New York, will lead the entire 10 weeks of the Oral Instructions of Mahamudra Retreat. With over 30 years of study and practice of Buddha’s teachings, he presents Buddha’s most profound teachings in a practical and accessible way. As one of Venerable Geshe-la’s senior disciples, Gen Samten has had the unique opportunity to engage in a three year silent retreat and carries with him a wealth of experience in skillfully guiding sincere practitioners to profound meditative insights on retreat.
