In this retreat, we reflect on this verse from one of the most liberating texts of the Buddha’s words, the Dhammapada. The awakening of the Buddha is an invitation to embody wisdom and freedom in our own lives. Practicing together, we will draw upon three traditions — the heart of Zen, the spirit of Tibetan Buddhism and the essence of Theravada — to illuminate this invitation.
