Weekend Retreat:  The Three Marks of Conditioned Existence

7pm Friday 9 – 4pm Sunday 11 June

The three marks of conditioned existence (lakshanas) are impermanence, insubstantiality and unsatisfactoriness. They are all interlinked and interdependent.  But it is our continual failure to take this into account which makes us unenlightened.

Recognition of the three lakshanas, not just abstractly or intellectually, is part of wisdom. To gain wisdom we have to fully realise the reality of them in the whole of our experience. On this retreat we will be using our intellect, emotions and all of our senses to understand the three lakshanas better.
