Self Retreat

If one wishes to go on retreat at your own home for a few days or even one day, this is a suggested schedule that you can follow. Try as much as possible not to talk to others, nor to engage in other activities. Naturally do not watch television or listen to radio. During the reading sessions, read only materials pertaining to Buddha Dharma. Try to limit one practice each day. Example if you are practicing Vajrasattva, then you should practice Vajrasattva in all the practice sessions during the day. You can substitute your 4:00 pm practice session with another True Nature of Mind practice.
