Annual Dharma Retreat, July 3rd–8th, 2007
As is the tradition, the annual Dharma Retreat hosted by the Yin-shun Foundation at Bodhi Monastery features Dharma talks, meditation sessions, study groups, and liturgy — a balanced blend of the intellectual, contemplative, and emotional sides of the Buddhist path.
English Program: Tuesday, July 3rd–Thursday, July 5th, 2007
The English program of the retreat runs for three days and includes a general range of Dharma teachings. Those who are staying over for the entire English Program are welcome to stay on for the rest of the retreat and use the additional time for independent study and practice. Lectures will be given by Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, Ven. Thich Tri Hoang, Ven. Bhikkhu Dhamma(dipa), and Michael Roehm. Ven. Xin-xing will lead the early afternoon meditation each day.
Chinese Program: Tuesday, July 3rd–Sunday, July 8th, 2007
The Chinese program is based primarily on the teachings of Venerable Master Yin-shun and runs for the entire week. The theme of the Chinese program in memory of Ven. Yin-shun is titled “Spreading the Bodhisattva Path.”
If you plan on staying overnight during the retreat, we suggest that you apply early since dorm space is limited. You can apply online through the deadline date of June 20th. You can also pick up an application form at the monastery reception desk. On-site registration is on Monday, July 2nd.
