10.30 - 13.00: Teachings on Rain of Clarity
The book is a condensed guide to the entire Buddhist path based on the key Buddhist teachings of the Sakya school. It is described by His Holiness Sakya Trizin as “a gateway into Buddhist spiritual thought”.
“Through this Buddhist teaching the student receives a full blueprint of entering the path, keeping the vows, maintaining motivation, leading a better and more virtuous life, and finally a way to liberation.”
14.30 - 16.30: Initiation of Simhanada*
Simhanada is a form of Chenrezik, the embodiment of the enlightened compassion of all the Buddhas and is particularly associated with the removal of sickness and disease. This initiation is contained both within the collection of The Thirteen Golden Dharmas of the Sakya school and The Hundred Sadhanas of Bari Lotsawa. Lama Jampa received the former lineage from His Holiness Sakya Trizin, and the latter from Karma Thinley Rinpoche.
*In order to receive this initiation one must be and Buddhist and have taken refuge. Lama Jampa Thaye may bestow refuge by arrangement – please contact the centre for information.
