Retreat in Taiwan "How to be a Real Practitioner"

I recite mantras, do meditation and prostrations everyday, and I try to help and be good to people as much as I can, why am I still afflicted by anger, frustration, fear, worries, and hatred? Am I really practicing Dharma? How do I know I am practicing correctly or being a genuine spiritual person? How can I ensure that I continuously improve on the path?

Wencheng Gongzhu Buddhist Society in Taiwan is inviting its spiritual teacher, H.E. Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche, to help shed some light on these questions of serious answer seekers.

In addition, Rinpoche will be sharing some very special and exlusive secret ways to practice.

For this rare and sacred ocassion, WGBS is holding the retreat at Taiwan's own special hot spring resort. You will enjoy a weekend of relaxing soul, mind and body.
