Retreat on Universal Compassion

We practised training the mind – or, lojong – with guidance and teachings from our teacher at a weekend meditation retreat held online and in-person from December 23-25 at our meditation centre in Salt Lake, Kolkata.

The retreat was based on the book ‘Universal Compassion’, which is Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche’s commentary to the classic 12th century text ‘Training the Mind in Seven Points’ by Geshe Chekhawa. The retreat helped in deepening our understanding of conventional bodhichitta, Shakyamuni Buddha’s Mahayana teachings on love and compassion.
