SATURDAY 26 FEBRUARY
THE POWER OF MANTRA 10am – 12.45pm | in-person & online
MALA MAKING WORKSHOP 2 – 4pm | in-person
Inner protection. Inner happiness. Inner power.
Mantra means mind protection. It is the supreme method to enhance the qualities of our body and mind. It can be used to help calm our mind by pacifying negative thoughts that give rise to suffering and it can also be used to go deeper and connect with enlightened power.
On this morning course Gen Wangmo will explain the meaning of mantra, how it functions and give instructions on combining mantra recitation with breathing meditation. This is a simple but powerful method to attain a calm, controlled and positive mind and creates special causes to experience the supreme inner peace of our enlightened mind.
Mala Making Workshop
Many people find it helpful to have a mala, or set of prayer beads, to use when reciting mantras. In the afternoon there will be a workshop where you can make your own mala.
Gen Kelsang Wangmo has been studying and practising Kadampa Buddhism and ordained as a nun for over 20 years. Loved for her gentle and joyful approach and her sincere example, Gen Wangmo’s lighthearted yet profound teachings provide practical wisdom for modern daily life.
