This Retreat will be based on the NKT Fall Festival. In this retreat, we make prayers to Buddha Amitayus for everyone, including our self, to enjoy a long life endowed with good fortune and great wisdom.Programme:
The retreat starts on the first day with supper at 6pm followed by the introduction at 8.15pm and finishes on the last day with lunch. There will be several meditation sessions and one teaching/discussion session every day as well as a session with chanted prayers. During break times each participant helps with small jobs and there is plenty of time to go for walks and discuss the topics with other practitioners. The retreat can also be attended by the week. Bookings for longer stays have priority.
Only during the Retreat the participants observe silence on morning until lunch. The library and meditation room are silent zones all day.
The Retreat will be conducted in English and translated into German, please contact us if you need additional translation..
Kailash IRC is a non-profit charity and the Retreat Centre, B&B and courses are all run by a few volunteers. Therefore it is common practice during an event at Kailash IRC that every participant helps with some jobs (e.g. chopping vegetables, washing dishes, tidying up etc.) and the final cleaning at the end of the course.
