Sunday morning: Teachings on Rain of Clarity

Rain of Clarity - the stages of the path in the Sakya tradition is a 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.”

Sunday afternoon: Initiation of Sanjay Menla (Medicine Buddha)*

*in order to receive this initiation one must previously have made a formal commitment to the Buddhist path through the ceremony of Taking Refuge in the Three Jewels. If you have not taken refuge and would like to then please contact the centre beforehand.
