Rejoicing In Buddha: Short Talk on the Liberating Prayer

Special Talk for Buddha’s Enlightenment Day

In this special class, open to everyone, Gen Gomlam will give a short talk about The Liberating Prayer, as a way to remember Buddha’s kindness and feel a close connection with him in our life. This prayer is like the signature of Kadampa Buddhism and adds gentle inspiration to our classes, retreats and special events. Venerable Geshe-la has said that it “contains the essence of all Buddhas’ teachings of Sutra and Tantra.” Everyone is welcome to celebrate with us!

April 15th marks the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni demonstrating the attainment of enlightenment in 589 B.C.E. This is an extremely important day in the Buddhist calendar because our actions are 100,000 times more powerful than on other days. What a wonderful way to remember the supreme kindness and example of Buddha.  Everyone welcome!
