Bodhgaya, India, is the sacred location of the Buddha’s enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree. Root Institute, the FPMT retreat center located just a 15-minute walk from this holy site, offers students many opportunities to study, practice and offer service.
The latest edition of Root’s newsletter, “Roots of Wisdom,” shares inspiring teachings, stories and interviews that give a flavor of the beneficial activities happening at the center, including an account of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa’s recent visit and impromptu teaching on the nature of the mind.
Root offers a full spiritual program from October through March for students of all levels. Ven. Antonio Satta is mong this year’s teachers featured in the newsletter. Ven. Sarah Thresher, Glen Svensson, Jimi Neal, Kay Cooper and Gordon McDougal are also teaching or leading retreats this year at Root.
In addition, the newsletter features advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche; an interview with Geshe Jamphel Gyaltsen, a lharampa geshe from Sera Je who has been staying at Root and who will be going to Nalanda Monastery in France to become a resident teacher; and updates on Root’s charitable projects: Shakyamuni Buddha Community Health Care Programme, the Maitreya School and Tara Children’s Project.
