Oceania Order Convention: Cultivating a Garden in the Wilderness

“When the mind inclines to ardour, devotion, perseverance and striving……..growth is assured!” 

What are the conditions that aid spiritual growth individually and collectively? How does this relate to us participating in the “Life of the Order”? Through, study, discussion, meditation and with reference to the Cetokhila Sutta, we will collectively explore what this may mean for us. Does our approach need to change in the current environment of climate change, gender diversity. By coming together with a strong sense of what unites us, we will cultivate a garden in the wilderness.

We will run the Convention residentially and virtually.  This means you can attend in person at Vijayaloka or via zoom.
