Following the advice of Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche to accumulate 1,800,000 of the long Ksitigarbha mantra, at Land of Medicine Buddha, we will start doing retreat sessions from Nov 5 – Nov 19.
Session times for Nov 10, Tuesday:
- 5pm – 6pm
- 6:15pm – 7:15pm
- 7:30pm – 8:30pm
Please check the dates and times carefully on our website. We are able to do three 1-hr sessions on some days and others, only one session on others.
Please join us as much as you can at Land of Medicine Buddha. We are doing the Ksitigarbha (Earth-Treasure) practice in order to purify negative karma in relation to our environment. It is in general more powerful to do practices in a group. It will also give you a taste of what it is like to do a mantra retreat and keep to mantra recitation discipline!
See Retreat Session date and times here.
Who can participate
Anyone – from all over the over the world – can participate in this and send us numbers of mantras recited. Please email if you are interested in pariticipating in this mantra count from home. Or regster below.
Practice booklets and audio files of the recitation of mantra are available here.
How to do the mantra recitation:
- Double vowels in the mantra (e.g. KAA, PHAA) indicate that the syllable should have a longer sound. The effect is similar to the stress falling on that syllable.
- Mantras should be recited and not just read with the eyes or mind. Your mantra recitation should be loud enough for you to hear but not so loud that others can hear you.
