Attaining Enlightenment in the Modern World
Most Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 5 – 6 PM, see calendar. Cost: Free.
The Heart Jewel practice with Lamrim is the main meditation practice in Kadampa Buddhism. First, we engage in Heart jewel prayers to create a strong connection with enlightened beings, and help fill our mind with positive, healing energy.
This prepares us for Lamrim meditation, led by our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Gomlam. Lamrim, also known as the stages of the path to enlightenment, is a special set of instructions laid out in 21 meditations that includes all the essential teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni. The final half of Heart Jewel prayers protects our mind from inner and outer obstacles during the meditation break.
All our prayers and meditation practices are recited in English with beautiful easy-to-learn melodies and CD accompaniment. Everyone is welcome to participate in these prayers and meditations.
