Altruistic Activity Retreat in Dharma City - Retraite d’activité altruiste à la Cité du Dharma

The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva
Patrul Rinpoche invites his students who have time during September and October to join the Altruistic Activity retreat which will combine study and altruistic work in Dharma City.
What is the meaning of an altruistic retreat? It is a means to work, practice and study for the benefit of both, other beings and ourselves. Through these activities we develop our wisdom, we purify our obscurations and we make all our qualities shine brighter and brighter.
During the retreat Patrul Rinpoche will teach on the text “The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva”. By improving our knowledge of the Dharma, we get to understand the relative and the absolute realities more. Then we apply what we previously studied, and we swiftly progress on the path towards enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, including ourselves. 

During the second half of each day, students will have the chance to contribute to the development and the improvements of the facilities in Dharma City. By doing this, we train our body, speech and mind on the path of virtue through the use of bodhicitta and through the dedication of merit to the perfect happiness of our mother sentient beings. Therefore, the altruistic retreat is an extremely pure spring from which the nectar of merit and virtue flows into the cup of those that are called great beings. 

A General Buddhist Studies Course will take place in Brussels at the end of the Altruistic Retreat. More details about this course can be found here.
