Mantra meditation is one of the easiest and most accessible practices of Tibetan Buddhism.
Visualizing oneself as a Buddha or bodhisattva while reciting a mantra and making aspirations for the benefit of beings is a powerful way to connect to our own inner goodness and send love, compassion and wisdom to other beings.
Since many mantra meditation texts (called “sadhana” texts) are recited in Tibetan, they can be a little difficult to approach. But KTC wants to help everyone feel comfortable and welcome to attend our weekly sadhana practices, so our lamas and instructors plan to offer “Learning Sadhanas on Saturday” instruction sessions from time to time on Saturdays..
This workshop will cover the Chenrezig (Bodhisattva of Compassion) mantra practice. It will be led by KTC Senior Meditation Instructor Cathy Lhamo Jackson
Topics covered will include the history of the sadhana, the principles of mantra meditation, and step-by-step instructions on how to learn and benefit from Tibetan Buddhist visualization meditation.
Practitioners of all experience levels are welcome to attend. There are no special prerequisites for this class. Students will receive links to download a PDF of a short Chenrezig chant practice and a PDF of a teaching outline for the class.
