A SPECIAL HALF DAY COURSE

Discover how to establish a powerful daily meditation practice that will take you to enlightenment. In order to progress in our spiritual life, we need to purify our negativity, accumulate merit , and receive blessings by making a connection with a Spiritual Guide. We also need to overcome obstacles to our spiritual practice and create favourable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our pure Dharma realizations.

On this morning course Gen Thekchen will explain how we can achieve this and gain special protection in our spiritual life by connecting with the wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa and his Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden. This is a rare opportunity to receive teachings on the essential heart practice of Kadampa Buddhism, Heart Jewel.
