Wishfulfilling Jewel with Tsog
May 22 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Prayers for wisdom, compassion and spiritual protection. This practice includes a tsog offering so you can bring a vegetarian food offering with you if you wish. Everyone is welcome! Chanted prayers (Pujas) are an important component of training in a spiritual life. They help us to still our mind, connect with enlightened beings, and receive blessings.The practice of Wishfulfilling Jewel is the heart essence of Kadampa Buddhism. In the first part we visualize our Spiritual Guide as Je Tsongkhapa and make prayers and requests to purify negativity, accumulate merit, and receive blessings. This prepares our mind for a fifteen-minute meditation on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. After the meditation we make prayers to our Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden. Through this we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favourable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our pure Dharma realizations. (1 hour).
