Guru Rinpoche Day*
A Shower of Blessings Sadhana:  a guru yoga practice to accompany the Seven Line Prayer

Led by Michel Roussel

By donation

*Each 10th Day of the Lunar month is dedicated to Guru Padmasambhava. This is because, although he is never separate from those who have faith in him, he promised that on this particular day, he would definitely appear to us, “in person” as it were.  Prayers to Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, are considered to be increasingly potent during these difficult times, and he is often invoked for protection and the removal of obstacles.

Treasury of Blessings, Heart Sutra, Lamp Offering, 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The Treasury of Blessings Sadhana

A simple and beautiful meditation on Sakyamuni Buddha that anyone can practice. This practice was revealed by Mipham Rinpoche in the 19th century. It combines visualization, mantra chanting, and meditative absorption. We can experience peace, clarity of mind, and the blessings of the Buddhas through this meditation. By reflecting upon the qualities of the Buddha and resting the mind in the recitation of mantras, we can pacify destructive emotions and sow the seeds for enlightenment.

The Heart Sutra

“The Sutra of the Heart of the Transcendent Perfection of Wisdom” or “The Heart Sutra” in short, encapsulates the topic of the Prajnaparamita (Transcendent Perfection of Wisdom) Sutra on the unerring paths of methods taught in all Sutras. The infallible meaning of the entire essence of the vast and profound Prajnaparamita Sutra is brought together here in this one Sutra—The Heart Sutra. When listening, contemplating, and meditating on The Heart Sutra are practiced to their ultimate end, the great unsurpassable knowledge naturally and directly manifests. All sufferings are completely pacified. The unequalled states of liberation and omniscience of Arhats, Bodhisattvas, and Buddhas are attained. As a result, one shall definitely abide in the undeceiving Genuine Reality.

Sunday, June 23, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Chenrezik & Amitabha Sadhanas

Love, compassion, joy, and wisdom—together known as bodhicitta—are the indivisible nature of the Buddha’s enlightened mind. Chenrezik (Skt. Avalokiteshvara), the Buddha of Infinite Compassion, is the embodiment of these virtuous qualities. 

Through the practice of Amitabha, the Buddha of Boundless Light, beings, especially those with faith, are guided to rebirth in Dewachen (Skt. Sukhavati), the pure realm of immaculate happiness, joy and bliss.
