Repeats every week every Wednesday until Tue Mar 31 2020 except Wed Mar 18 2020, Wed Mar 25 2020.
7:00 pm Wednesday, March 4, 2020

 

 Lama Tsongkhapa's Lamrim presents the entire path to enlightenment in a step-by-step fashion.

Geshe Gelek advises that beyond study, we need meditation and thoughtful engagement in the text in order to have realizations.  Hearing the teachings is just the first step.

In addition, we need merit-making practices to open the doors to deeper understanding. These include the great preliminary practices of prostrations to the 35 Confession Buddhas, Vajrasattva practice, making mandala offerings, and reciting the refuge and bodhicitta prayer.

In these practice sessions, we will combinethese preliminary practices, with additional prayer and meditation on selected lamrim texts.

The evening will include:

Lama Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga and meditation

Purification practice (on alternating weeks, we will do prostrations to the 35 Confession Buddhas and Vajrasattva practice)

Mandala offerings

Analytical meditation on selected lamrim texts

as well as other prayers
