Do you want to supercharge your meditation practice?
Join resident teacher and Buddhist Monk, Gen Sanden, to learn and become confident in the essential practice of Heart Jewel. There is no more powerful method than doing your meditations in conjunction with Heart Jewel prayers.
Heart Jewel is a beautiful set of prayers to the wisdom Buddha Manjushri appearing in two aspects, as the Spiritual Guide (the teacher as a manifestation of Je Tsongkhapa , teaching us everything we need to know) and as our Protector (someone clearing our path of obstacles).
Through receiving blessings of all enlightened beings in this way, the seeds of our practice receive all the nourishment necessary to yield a rich inner harvest of actual realizations of the stages of the path to enlightenment.
Week 1: Preliminary practices … laying the foundation
Week 2: Guru yoga – Bring on the blessings! 🙂
Week 3: The need for protection .. our mind is exposed without it!
