‘Whatever appears is all the nature of mind’ – Je Maitripa
Mahamudra meditation is both simple and profound. By allowing our mind to settle into its natural, uncontrived state, we become familiar with the conventional nature of mind, sometimes described as a state that it is merely clear and knowing. Within this peaceful, pure and clear state, we can begin to approach mind’s deepest nature – that it is merely a dependent arising, with no truly existent faults, stains or limitations.
Les Sheehy, director of the Tibetan Buddhist Society’s Perth centre, has received the profound teachings of mahamudra from his teachers Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden and Venerable Zasep Tulku Rinpoche, and has practised these methods for many years and led numerous mahamudra retreats.
This beautiful, peaceful practice is suitable both for experienced meditators and people who are newer to meditation. The retreat will include instruction on the practice, guided meditations and an introduction to the mahamudra philosophy of mind.
This retreat is held over six days, with the option to stay at the Peaceful Land of Joy Meditation Centre in Yuroke or to attend each day.
There is plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful peaceful environment of the temple and gardens, delicious home-cooked food and to meet other meditators in a welcoming community.
