The "Heart Sutra" is one of the most famous and revered of the Buddha's teachings. This profound teaching on Emptiness is revealed through a dialogue between two of the Buddha's main disciples, Avalokiteshvara and Shariputra. It contains the very essence of all the Buddha's teachings. By understanding the meaning of Emptiness, or how things actually exist in our world, instead of how we usually perceive them, we can learn to let go of harmful, negative emotions and cultivate our marvelous potential for clarity and contentment of mind and deepen our compassion as well as the many other qualities that are innate within us. Reciting the "Heart Sutra" is often recommended by the lamas for gaining wisdom and removing obstacles in our lives. The retreat will be lead by Venerable Robina. Hailing from Australia, she has been an ordained Buddhist nun since the 1970's. She has served as the Editorial Director of Wisdom Publications and "Mandala Magazine" and currently teaches Buddhism around the world. The retreat begins at 4pm on January 11 and ends at 1:30 on January 18

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
