Padmasambhava Day

Sun 27 Sep

'Not The Buddha in the Garden Centre!'

Lockdown restrictions cannot suppress the energy of the VAJRA GURU PADMASAMBHAVA! We will have a celebration, but a reduced one online, a morning session and an evening session, so that we’re not on-screen all day.

Morning session 10.30am - 12pm: Meditation, mantra chanting and a talk from Sujana. His title is “Not The Buddha in the Garden Centre!"
Visit any Garden Centre and you will find a Buddha statue representing calm, peace and serenity. For many people this is the image of how a Buddhist should be. But there is much more to us than just peace and serenity. In this talk Sujana will discuss some stories from the life of Padmasambhava, the transformation of mind, the importance of archetypes and some personal experience of visualisation in meditation.

Evening session 7.30pm - 9pm: Images of Padmasambhava with chanting, followed by Padmasambhava Puja.

Open to all.
