Seeing with Wisdom
led by Ratnaguna
for Order Members

‘When one sees the Lakshanas with wisdom, one turns away from suffering. This is the path to purification.’
The Dhammapada

The purpose of this retreat is to deepen our understanding of the Three Lakshanas – impermanence, unsatisfactoriness, and unsubstantiality – by practising the Three Wisdoms: listening, reflecting, and meditating. The Three Wisdoms can be understood either as a progressive sequence or as three different gateways to wisdom.



Seen as a sequence, we move from a conceptual understanding of the Lakshanas to what the Buddha called a reflective acceptance of them, and from there to a direct seeing with wisdom. Seen as 'gateways', Wisdom can arise equally through learning from another, through thinking deeply, or through meditating.

On this retreat Ratnaguna will guide us in practices that will enable us to explore the Three Wisdoms experientially, and thus to begin to see the Lakshanas with wisdom.

This retreat is for members of the Triratna Buddhist Order
