Dispelling the cloud of suffering

"There's a big, black cloud hanging over the human race and it needs to be dispelled by the united efforts of us all." - Sangharakshita

Avalokitesvara

A Queen's Birthday Order weekend at the Auckland Buddhist Centre, with international Order convenors Lokeshvara and Aryajaya. Open to members of the Triratna Buddhist Order only.

Join us as we enter into the myth of the Bodhisattva which sits at the heart of Triratna, through talks, meditation, discussion and ritual.

We will engage the tension between attending to our inner lives and expressing a deep solidarity with other living beings in our relations with the world; thereby approaching the non-duality of Wisdom and Compassion. This is Bodhicitta – symbolised by the wish-fulfilling jewel held to the heart of Avalokitesvara, the archetypal Bodhisattva of compassion.

Come to explore together how to participate in this myth, train in the Bodhisattva path, and unite in our efforts to alleviate the cloud of suffering.
