Cultures teach us how to notice, and mark, transitions in time, as when one season turns to the next or when one stage of life flows into another. Some psychologists believe that our very sense of who we are is the story we tell ourselves about where we’ve been, where we are, and where we imagine we are going. Our story is framed by time and place and the meanings we find in their intersections.
In this 7 day Vipassana Retreat Aparna will share the teachings of 'The Heart Sutra', possibly the best known text of Mahayana Buddhism, and said to be the pure distillation of wisdom
(prajna). Penetrate the true meaning of the Heart Sutra, says Karl Brunnhölzl, and nothing will be the same again.
The Retreat Program includes devotional singing, guest speakers, Sai Spiritual Education for children, service to the Bodhi community, a short period of silence each day, Meditation opportunities, and uplifting Satsang.
