Join us for a rotating schedule of practices led by experienced Dharma practitioners.
Vajrasattva (1st Monday of the month)
This Vajrasattva practice and other purification practices are the ultimate answer, so everything in the world—what you see, every situation—tells you to practice Vajrasattva. To purify and do Vajrasattva practice is the ultimate answer, to stop the cause to be reborn in the lower realms and the immediate [result] is to have a higher rebirth, to make preparation for death and then to meet the Dharma, to meet the virtuous friend who reveals the path to enlightenment. Then to achieve ultimate happiness, to be free from samsara and to achieve enlightenment for the numberless sentient beings and to free them from the oceans of samsaric sufferings and bring them to full enlightenment.”
Each session includes some quiet stabilizing meditation and then a simple deity practice (sadhana) with basic prayers and mantra recitation.
When we say “deity” we are referring to enlightened beings, i.e., buddhas. By doing these sadhanas, we activity the qualities of these enlightened beings within ourselves.
Bring a mala (rosary) if you have one to help keep count of mantras. We have beautiful malas for sale at our bookstore. Practice leader will give instructions on this part of practice.
Open to all.
