  • “Renunciation and Refuge”
    Sun 19 Jan 2pm
    “Don’t think, as many do, that renunciation means giving something desirable up. But there’s a dangerous fire burning inside you. That’s what you have to extinguish; what you have to renounce, let go, is the flaming mind of grasping attachment. That’s what’s burning you.” Lama Thubten Yeshe, 1935 – 84, founder of the FPMT
    That’s renunciation. Refuge is what you rely on to make you happy now and into the future.
    By donation. No booking required.
