Vajradhara Community Practice Day

Free for members   •   $15 for non-members   •   August 3 with Sumit Som
This is a regular monthly event.

In this once-a-month practice gathering, we will receive teachings on preparing the mind for deep meditation in conjunction with the Heart Jewel practice. There will also be some explanation of selected Lamrim meditations. On the basis of these explanations, we will engage in Lamrim and Mahamudra meditations and progress on the path to liberation and enlightenment.

PLEASE NOTE: This class is intended for those with some experience of Kadampa Buddhist practices, or at least some familiarity/comfort with traditional Buddhist practices and worldview.
