Parting from the Four Attachments

10:30am - 1:00pm

Lama Jampa will give teachings on Parting from the Four Attachments using the commentary by Nubkyi Rigzin Drak. This teaching is an excellent introduction to the graduated path of meditation, accessible to both the beginner and the more experienced alike. A special feature of this text is the manner in which the system of Parting from the Four Attachments is interwoven with that of the Four Dharmas.

Initiation of Chenrezik Mahamudra

2:30 - 4:30pm

This initiation bestows the authority to meditate on Chenrezik, the embodiment of compassionate energy, and on mahamudra - the great seal - which is the true nature of mind. It is one of the most widespread meditation practices in Vajrayana Buddhism. This initiation is connected with the famous sadhana composed by the great Sakyapa master Ngorchen Konchog Lhundrup and practised at Dechen Sakya Centres. Through meditation upon Chenrezik we quickly develop compassion, and conjoined with Mahamudra we are also benefited by meditating directly on the nature of mind.
