UPCOMING EVENT

 

REFUGE TAKING CEREMONY & THE BODHISATTVA VOW

Sunday, September 25, 2pm 

As requested, Lama Tenzin will be bestowing the Refuge Vow and the Bodhisattva vow on Sept 25. All are welcome. 

 

The Refuge Vow and Bodhisattva Vow are traditional vows that have been part of the Buddhist path for centuries. Taking a vow in a formal ceremony is a way to set our intention and to plant a deep seed of aspiration for the unfolding of our spiritual path. In taking the Refuge Vow, we take refuge in the Three Jewels: the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. When we take refuge, we commit ourselves to the Buddhist path. After taking the Refuge Vow, the Bodhisattva Vow is a further expression of commitment to the Buddhist path of awakening, in which we take a vow to help all sentient beings.

 

If you would like to take refuge for the first time please register by return email. If you have already registered through the Calm Abiding Class, thank you for registering. 

 

Registration is not required for the Bodhisattva Vow. Everyone is welcome to take advantage of this opportunity to take or renew their vows. Khatas will be available at the temple.

THE KSDL CREEMORE RETREAT CENTRE
We have previously announced the acquisition of our new retreat centre to KSDL members, and we are happy to report that the renovations are nearing completion. We will be making plans soon for the KSDL member's open house.  Here is more info for everyone who is interested in the activity of KSDL.

KSDL has recently purchased a new retreat centre just south of Georgian Bay, close to Wasaga Beach and Collingwood, 3 km from the town of Creemore. The new KSDL Retreat Centre is a four bedroom building situated on 5.8 acres of land. The property contains several forests, two ponds, landscaped lawns and well maintained perennial gardens. The main house has two kitchens, a dining room, living room, three washrooms, a laundry room, and space for a shrine room which the KSDL Lamas are presently working on. The sleeping accommodations include several bedrooms with many beds including bunk beds. There is a cabin in the gardens, and plenty of space on the property for camping.The house was purchased furnished and in good condition. We are presently installing insulation and renovating the lower kitchen. The property has sweeping views of the surrounding rolling farmland and forests in a beautiful area of Ontario known as the Purple Hills. We look forward to offering many regular retreats at the new Centre. Donations toward the purchase and renovation of this worthwhile project will be very much appreciated.

KSDL IS OPEN 

All those entering the temple are required by law to wear masks. Please practice good handwashing procedures, cover your mouth and use a tissue if you cough or blow your nose, and dispose immediately of used tissues. Hand disinfectants will be provided throughout the temple. Please exercise caution and consideration for the benefit of yourself and others.
