Eliminating Obstacles to Attaining Spiritual Realizations Saturday, September 14 Day Retreat: @10am – 5pm

Even though we may try very hard, it’s difficult to develop spiritual realizations. When we draw close to gaining some experience from our practice, our effort often degenerates and we don’t succeed.

At times we may feel strong faith in our Spiritual Teacher, but we can lose this feeling. It’s hard to develop faith in Buddha’s teachings (Dharma) and understand the real meaning of the teachings we receive. When we try to meditate, we find it hard to concentrate; and when we try to put Dharma into practice in our daily lives ,we hardly ever maintain a pure practice even for one hour. In this retreat we will look at various methods to overcome these obstacles.
