5-Day Mahayana Retreat with Genpo Roshi
Saturday February 18 - Thursday February 23, 2023 on Zoom
"Mahayana Buddhism is based on coming from the Apex, embracing both the dual (Hinayana) and the non-dual (Buddhayana) realities with wisdom and compassion, acting appropriately with discernment, including and transcending all opposites. This is what I mean by coming from the Apex in our everyday life, it is coming from choice rather than victimhood, from trust rather than fear. From here there is no one to blame. We simply take full responsibility for cause and effect, action and reaction, for life and death. It is not ignoring causation but rather being one with our karma."
-- Genpo Roshi
