Welcome - Meditating in the Mandala home retreat

By Sadayasihi on Fri, 12 Jun, 2020 - 10:40

Tejananda’s key image is of the dynamic mandala. Dharma practice is itself dynamic and transformative. And the transformation lies in gradually discovering how both we and the world are not at all what we originally supposed! Seeing this, we can begin to uproot the causes of suffering in our own experience.

This approach to practice is centred on the living energy of...
