Vipasyana Meditation Instruction – May 7th

Instructions on Vipasyana Meditation

by Venerable Khenpo Choephel

Sunday, May 7, 2017 10am-12pm, 1:30-4:30pm

VIPASYANA is a meditation method that cultivates special insight or excellent seeing.

According to Ven. Khenpo Choephel, Vipasyana Meditation is the concentrative method that can conquer wild mind, overcome afflictive emotions and uproot sorrow. One can find ultimate inner peace and realize perfect wisdom with this practice, so it is most important to take on this practice again and again until the ultimate accomplishment of seeing one’s true nature is reached.

The teaching will take place on Sundays, May 7.

ALL ARE WELCOME
