Committing to the challenge of a three-year meditation retreat provides an impossibly rare opportunity to explore the inner space of the mind, seek a cure for the suffering of the world, and find a repeatable path toward the goal of bringing peace and happiness for all who seek it.
The word "enlightenment" sounds vague and mystical, but the Buddha taught that it is quite achievable by deliberately following a series of steps. The three-year retreatants have been studying and practicing the steps very seriously for the last six or more years, and by going into the laboratory of solitary retreat they hope realize the final goal taught by Lord Buddha.
