Friday, December 18 to Sunday, December 20 **Registration Deadline: December 16**
with Acharya Lama Sönam Rabgye

The six paramitas – generosity, ethical discipline, patience, joyful diligence, meditative concentration and wisdom – are transcendent virtues which, in their perfect form, ultimately lead us beyond our worldly existence. On the way to Buddhahood they are our constant companions in daily life.

This weekend will be about the paramitas of meditation and wisdom, not only from the theoretical point of view, but also with a focus on shamatha and vipashyana meditation.

English with German translation.
