Heart Jewel with Meditation
*No session from July 25th - August 10th
Heart Jewel is a Kadampa practitioner's daily prayers which contains two essential practices of Kadampa Buddhism revealed by Wisdom Buddha Manjushri: a special Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa and a special method for relying upon the Dharma protector, Dorje Shugden. By engaging in these practices regularly and sincerely we will reap a rich harvest of pure Dharma realizations, and eventually, come to experience the supreme joy of full enlightenment.
There is a 15 min pause between the two sets of prayers for silent self-guided meditation.
