Attending a Buddhist retreat at Vajrapani Institute brings immeasurable benefits.
Learning about the Buddhist point of view and training in Buddhist practices offers:
Increased peace of mind
Greater compassion and love for others
Expanded wisdom about the causes of problems and their solutions
Insight into the nature of reality
These priceless qualities are the secret to lasting happiness, and directly impact our relationships, allowing us to be of much greater help to friends, family and coworkers. People from a variety of spiritual traditions have found great benefit from studying and practicing the Dharma, even while remaining within their own faith.
In addition, the group setting offers you added benefits. The spiritual community or "Sangha" is considered very important in Buddhism because we are deeply affected by the people we surround ourselves with. Wisely, we are encouraged to spend as much time as possible with those that nurture our good qualities.
Becoming a part of Vajrapani's loving and devoted community offers you:
Companionship on your spiritual journey
Support of others traveling a similar path
New connections and friendships with others seeking to live from compassion and wisdom
