Receiving the precepts is the first step on the Buddhist way. One then becomes a bodhisattva, “a being who practices enlightenment” and thus helps all existences to liberate themselves.
During this retreat, teachings will be given on the main aspects of bodhisattva practice:
  • Taking refuge in the Three Treasures – Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.
  • Repentance: acknowledging without guilt the infinity of our small dysfunctions.
  • Receiving the precepts.
On August 14, the great ceremony of entering into the Way will take place.
Whether you wish to enter the Buddha-Way and receive the precepts, or support those who will receive the precepts, you are all welcome to attend this session.

Receiving the precepts 2021

    Due to the sanitary situation, it is no longer possible to stay in a dormitory. Everyone is accommodated in a single room, which reduces our accommodation capacity and therefore our financial resources. An average single rate is offered. Those with a small budget can ask for a reduction. Those with sufficient means can give more.
