A Spiritual Journey

A Special Opportunity to Deepen Your Compassion Practice in India
January 17 - 29, 2019

  Start your new year with a very special opportunity to deepen your practice of compassion by journeying to Drepung Loseling Monastery! Led by Geshe Lobsang Tenzin Negi, this unique immersion experience will combine meditation practice, discussions, cultural experiences and teachings by Drepung Loseling’s renowned masters—all in a unique spiritual setting. This is a rare opportunity to learn firsthand from these venerable teachers.
While at the monastery, the group will be hosted at the new Meditation and Science Center, a modern facility with a magnificent view of the monastery’s main prayer hall. This itinerary also includes a two-day visit to UNESCO World Heritage sites Ajanta and Ellora, featuring rock-cut Buddhist cave temples dating back to the 2nd century CE. Participants will have the opportunity to not only visit, but to meditate in this spectacular setting.
