Our modern human society has produced technology in which we can indulge in virtually every conceivable distraction. As a result, instead of drawing us closer together, such distractions tend to marginalize and isolate us from one another. This is but one of many conditions for feeling that our life has no real meaning. Buddha taught that our life has five great meanings  This day course will investigate these meanings and explain how to practically apply this understanding into daily life.

Compassion is said to be our ‘Buddha nature.’ Our Buddha nature is our potential to attain the perfect state of consciousness of full enlightenment. If we nurture our seed of compassion sufficiently, it will definitely grow and gradually take us to the everlasting joy of enlightenment. However, the development of compassion by itself is like one wing of bird. In order to take flight a bird needs two wings. The other wing is wisdom. Wisdom and compassion are complimentary and this combination will swiftly take us to supreme joy of our highest spiritual potential. Therefore, this retreat will focus on how to unify these two powerful and indispensable causes of ultimate happiness.
