In Mahayana Buddhism, the Tathagatagarbha treatises are considered to be the earliest expression of the original concept of Buddha Nature.
Buddha Nature refers to the realization that all sentient beings, without exception, have the same essential nature and potential for enlightenment. Just as clouds temporarily cover the sun, so too can ignorance temporarily obscure our Buddha Nature and hinder our development of compassion and wisdom. Meditation practice can allow us to see the true nature of things and develop these naturally present seeds of enlightenment.
The retreat will be based on the Lankavatara Sutra and Arya Maitreya’s Uttaratantra-shastra. The retreat will consist of teachings, discussions, meditation and prayers.
