Event description

Description

Pure Mind, Compassionate Heart

At first read, the Amitabha Sutra, one of the three primary Pure Land sutras, may seem elementary and straightforward. Closer examination shows it is incredibly profuse with symbolic representations and profound teachings. During the retreat, Ven. Wuling will offer some of the lessons we can learn from the sutra that will allow us to end suffering, not just for ourselves, but all beings as well.

This retreat will include periods of meditation, interspersed with lectures, and mindful eating of organic homemade meals.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Venerable Wuling was born in 1946 in New York state. As a student of Venerable Master Chin Kung, she became a nun in Texas in 1997 and was ordained in Taiwan. She serves as a Vice-President of the Pure Land Learning College Association in Australia, is head of the Pure Land Translation Team, teaches at correctional centers in the US, and is the author of several books for children and adults. Venerable Wuling currently divides her time between Toowoomba in Australia and Indiana in the USA.
