Rigde Maha Guru Retreat Centre is a body with a modern approach to teach the Buddhist philosophy and educating the young and old coming from all walks of life, especially the younger generations who share greater responsibilities with the nation.
It is to all our knowledge that all the unwholesome actions are an ultimate result of unwholesome thought. All the suffering is the result of unwholesome actions. A thought good or bad is generated from our own mind. Therefore, taming one’s own single mind can put to the end of all the worldly sufferings. Thus, this retreat centre will play a vital role in taming the minds of people in this life itself.
Today the world is going through a big turmoil. Every human thought is carried away by the materialistic world. People have no time to practice dharma, which is the only way to happiness. Santi Deva has rightly said, "Root cause of all the sufferings is generated from one's own desire..." So only the way to happiness is through meditation and practice dharma - Thinking of other’s happiness which in return makes you happy forever.
There are 1000s of supporter for this noble cause and directly there are around 20 people working in this project.
The project benefits all the motherly sentient beings to realize one’s own true nature of bodhisattva and achieve the eternal happiness in all times to come.
We will have a retreat center where spiritual gurus will give teaching and meditations for FREE to any person in the world who wish to visit Bhutan for this spiritual teachings towards enlightenment in his/her life. The total cost for any person in the world who comes for this purpose including his/her lodging, food and stay would be 100% FREE.
The monastery in particular would be dwelling place for 50+ monks who help run the temple and retreat center.
The donations to this project directly benefit the construction of temple.
