About us

In the Tibetan tradition, taking the Bodhisattva Vow is the beginning of the path to achieving the completely awakened state of Buddha and is the essence of the Buddha’s teachings. In this weekend retreat, Dorlop Dr. Lye will give teachings and guided meditations on the Bodhisattva Vow and subsequent way of life based on the teachings of the Buddha, Shantideva, and the Kagyu masters of Tibet.

In addition to the teachings, Dr. Lye will confer the Bodhisattva Vow to all those who ready to formally embrace and actualize this altruistic mind. The Vow being conferred is from the tradition of the Lineage of Vast Conduct which began with Buddha Shakyamuni and was transmitted through Bodhisattva Maitreya to the Indian, and later, Tibetan masters.

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
