Dec 1 @ 9:00 am – Dec 2 @ 5:00 pm

To love everyone seems an impossible goal for most of us. In this two day retreat, Venerable Master Hai Tao will illuminate how this really is possible.

Join us for the extremely rare and special opportunity to receive the profound teachings. This is the first time Ven. Master Hai Tao has taught at the Garchen Buddhist Institute. He. E. Garchen Rinpoche personally invited him, and Rinpoche will himself attend Master Hai Tao’s teachings. He encourages all of his students to attend this auspicious occasion!

“Vowing to save sentient beings from suffering rather than seeking personal happiness” – this is the code of conduct for Ven. Master Hai Tao.
