International Urban Retreat

turning arrows into flowers

An international practice week including Triratna Centres and groups worldwide
Imagine: the Buddha on the cusp of Enlightenment, Mara attacks him with all he’s got …… but the Buddha does not react with anger, hatred, defensiveness  but instead sits in complete peace and openness: the arrows, abuse & weapons hurled at him drift down around him as soft and harmless flower petals.
This is our practice, to turn towards whatever the challenge is with openness, interest and kind awareness
