Vajrayana Practice ~ 2023

The Treasury of Blessings: A Meditation on Shakyamuni Buddha

March 19, 11:00 am

This Winter the Dharma Center has begun a new Vajrayana practice held on the third Sunday of each month.  You are welcome to join us for this meditation focusing on the historical Buddha Shakyamuni. We will use chanting, visualization, and silent meditation during this practice which will enhance both the form and formless portions of the meditation. The Shakyamuni Buddha practice is valuable for those who wish to begin Vajrayana meditation or enrich an ongoing practice.

YSDC Compassion Practice

Avalokitesvara the Bodhisattva of Compassion

2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 11am.

This Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig) Compassion Practice was given by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, a guiding Vajrayana teacher for the Dharma Center.  The practice is best described in his book,” The Union Mahamudra and Dzogchen.”  It is quickly learned and felt, giving rise to the energy of Compassion. The practice is a guided meditation that includes periods of silent sitting alternating with chanting and visualization. Each practice is led in such a way that those new to the practice can easily participate.
