Low Countries young Buddhists retreat April 2017

Gerda writes:

On a sunny, cloudy and windy Easter weekend in April, 27 young buddhists from five different countries came together in retreat centre Metta Vihara in the Netherlands to explore the idea of ‘total action, free mind’.

The Unshakeable: Sub35 retreat for men at Padmaloka

Posted by Prajnaketu on Fri, 10 Mar, 2017 - 14:26

‘Akshobya means immovable, what does not shake, what does not tremble.
He represents the openness, the non-centrality of the Enlightenment experience: its toughness and solidness, its indestructibility, its firmness, its strength, its immovability, its unshakeability.’

- THE UNSHAKEABLE -

21st - 28th April

A 7-day retreat exploring the unshakeable archetypal Buddha Akshobya, through ritual, talks, discussion, meditation and friendship.
Led by a team of young Order members and open to all men aged 18 - 35.

Call of the Running Tide

Posted by Free Buddhist Audio on Thu, 22 Dec, 2016 - 00:00
In this short personal talk given on the Men's Sub35 weekend entitled 'Steering to the Deep', Viryanaga parallels the Buddha comparing the Dharma to the mighty ocean in the Udana. In this talk Viryanaga recounts some of his experience and reflections of sailing on the strange and wonderful ocean, and compares this to his initial encounters and deepening within the Dharma.
