Thursday Evenings, September —December 2021 | 6:30-8:00pm
All Buddha Shakyamuni's 84,000 teachings of both Sutra and Tantra are included within the beautiful oral instruction, Request to the Lord of all Lineages.
This profound and blessed prayer was composed especially for us and is designed for easy memorization and deep contemplation. If we meditate on this prayer, it will doubtless touch our heart and transform our mind into authentic wisdom, love, compassion, and other spiritual realizations. Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche says:
"There is no greater meaning than engaging in this practice."
We are delighted that Kadam Lucy James will be guiding us through the meaning of this prayer with her customary skill and emphasis on applying it practically in our daily lives. She will also be drawing inspiration and material from the teachings and meditations given at the International Kadampa Festival in Spring 2021.
We request those of you who are interested to sign up for the whole course to get the full benefit. It will remain available for the duration.
