Event description

Description

The Rathavinīta Sutta provides an outline of how we can progressively use increasingly refined mental qualities to progress towards complete awakening. During this weekend, Bhante Nalaka will be explaining in detail how to use the contents of this sutta to map out the path of practice.

ABOUT THE TEACHER:

Bhante Nalaka was raised in western New York state. He was first inspired to become a Buddhist monk in 1972. After college, he read Zen Mind, Beginners Mind by Shunryu Suzuki and began practicing meditation every day. In 1981, he was introduced to the vipassana meditation technique taught by Mahāsi Sayadaw, and attended his first ten-day intensive retreat at IMS using the Mahāsi method. In 1983, he was ordained at the Vipassana Meditation Center at Kanduboda in Sri Lanka. Currently he resides at the Austin Buddhist Vihāra in Texas.
