Meditation Retreat on Nibbana Dhamma with Dr. Lalith Ranathunga from Australia
Wednesday, June 11th - Thursday, June 12th, 2014
The core of the Buddhist teaching is centered around liberating the mind from attachment, aversion and ignorance, or in other words around attaining Nibbana.
"Those who have neglected the Noble Eightfold Path have neglected the noble path leading to the complete destruction of suffering. Those who have undertaken the Noble Eightfold Path have undertaken the noble path leading to the complete destruction of suffering." (Connected Discourses of the Buddha - Maggasamyutta)
This retreat is focused on an ancient meditation technique based on the Noble Eightfold Path.
