Men’s Great Gathering Weekend: The Tantric Symbolism of the Vajra

14th October - 16th October

Great Gathering: The Tantric Symbolism of the Vajra. 

Maitrinara will be co-leading this retreat for men at Padmaloka in Norfolk. 

Spiritual power is required to make progress on the path to Enlightenment.

‘The vajra represents power, spiritual power, the power, we may say, that is inherent in Reality itself’
The Symbolism of the Sacred Thunderbolt, Sangharakshita

The Vajra, also known as the diamond thunderbolt, is whatever cuts through our habitual tendencies toward defensiveness and acquisition. On this Great Gathering, through the tantric symbolism of the Vajra, we will be exploring how to uncover and direct those forces which lead to a more radical embrace of life itself.

This is a great opportunity to connect with men from across the movement both in the UK and internationally and to continue to deepen your practice.
