Life as a monk/nun for 24 hours (Vietnamese Retreat) SORRY, FULL

Loading Events

Live as a monk/nun for 24 hours in the Vietnamese tradition.  Learn how monastics (monks & nuns) vow to follow additional precepts (rules) beyond what lay practitioners follow.  Monastic life is a strong commitment to follow the path of Buddha’s teachings for the benefit of all sentient beings.  But in some ways, a monastic life is not different from that of a lay practitioner.  It’s said that before you reach enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.  And after you reach enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.  The life of a monastic is that of a servant to all sentient beings.  Including the monastic themselves.  

The Vietnamese thien (zen) tradition focuses strongly on metta, or loving kindness.  That being said, all Buddhist traditions have the same goal–promoting peace and happiness for all.  Including oneself.
