You are welcome to join us in the traditional Tibetan temple for two Saturday afternoon sessions focusing on the beautiful practices of White Tara and Medicine Buddha.
Both White Tara and Medicine Buddha practices are effective methods to:
- – heal and maintain our health, and
- – generate merit to help overcome our negativities and cultivate positive minds.
Meditations for Peace and Happiness – White Tara Practice
Saturday 18 May 2019, from 2 pm to 5 pm
Learning to visualise White Tara can awaken our potential for peace and happiness. The practice of White Tara meditations can also produce a great accumulation of merit and virtue.
White Tara represents great compassion and expresses her peacefulness and love for all beings with her white radiance like a full moon.
Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, the spiritual head and founder of the Tibetan Buddhist Society, crafted beautiful White Tara prayers and meditations to help us develop peace and compassion, improve our mental and physical well-being, as well as energy and wisdom.
White Tara is also renowned for special long life practices and during the afternoon a focus on these will be included in the meditations.
The session leader is Pam Martin, a Tibetan Buddhist practitioner and long-time student of Venerable Geshe Loden.
A Powerful Well-being Practice – Medicine Buddha Meditations
Saturday 20 July 2019, from 2 pm to 5 pm
By practising the Medicine Buddha prayers and meditations, we create the causes and conditions for good mental, emotional and physical health, while cultivating the potential to benefit others.
The session includes meditations to:
- – increase our peacefulness, energy and strength
- – eliminate all negativities of body speech and mind, and
- – release us from all forms of suffering, especially disease.
Venerable Geshe Loden, a great master, known for his extraordinary compassion and wisdom, compiled this practice for the benefit of all living beings.
The session leader is Venerable Cathy Evans, a Buddhist nun and long-time student of Venerable Geshe Loden.
During the session, we will break for afternoon tea and an opportunity to relax and ask questions informally or wander in the beautiful gardens. The facility charge is $15. Registration is not required. All proceeds support maintenance of the temple and gardens.
