PALYUL JAMYANG SHERIG PHUNTSOK NORLING BUDDHIST CENTRE asbl, Brussels
GREEN TARA Celebration – Saturday 22nd of February 2020 – 15.00
To prepare for LOSAR (TIBETAN NEW YEAR) and finish the past year well, Rinpoche will offer auspicious prayers to Tara, the female embodiment of the wisdom of all Buddhas. The text we use is the well known “Essence of the Two Accumulations. Mandala Ritual from the Mind Treasure of the Profound Essence of Tara” or in French: “Le Coeur des Deux Accumulations, le rituel de Mandala”, extrait de “La Profonde Essence de la Liberatrice”. This ritual helps us to create merit to achieve profound peace of mind. It works towards World Peace and generally benefiting all beings.
We celebrate Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana on Saka Dawa by reciting “The Treasury of Blessing”.
In the Samādhirāja Sūtra it is said: Those who, while walking, sitting, standing, or sleeping, recollect the moon-like Buddha, will always be in Buddha’s presence, and will attain the vast nirvāṇa. And: His pure body is the colour of gold, beautiful is the Protector of the World. Whoever visualizes him like this, practises the meditation of the bodhisattvas. In keeping with this, we should practise remembering our incomparable teacher, the Lord of Sages. (from: Treasury of Blessings by Ju Mipham Rinpoche, courtesy Lotsawa House).
GURU RINPOCHE BIRTHDAY
We celebrate Guru Rinpoche’s Birthday by reciting “Barche Lamsel” and associated auspicious prayers.
SA YING TONGDRUP CHENPO – ༄༄།།ས་སྙིང་དུང་སྒྲུབ་ཆེན་པོ།།
Lama Lodoe Rinpoche invites us to start a grand accumulation of the Prayer of Sa Yi Nyingpo. The practice of Sa Yi Nyingpo puts us in contact with the essence of the Earth Element. Because of the pure altruistic vow of this great Bodhisattva, sentient beings are liberated from suffering. Health problems, financial difficulties, problems with advancement of projects and problems with growing crops will diminish, even earth quakes will be averted. Daily practice will help us to experience abundance, healing, pacification of conflicts, increase of wisdom and compassion.
Weekly Wednesday Meditation Session, 19.30 – 20.45
Short sessions of different meditation techniques, mantra chanting, well-known profound prayers such as “Praises to the 21 Taras” and “Barche Lamsel” sung with mindfulness, guided breathing exercises from the Kalachakra Yoga System. Our meditation is also inspired by the Uttaratantra Shastra or Gyü Lama, the well-known text on Buddha Nature inherent in all of us. These approaches will help our meditation by clarifying points and removing obstacles. They also generally strengthen our physical health and mental well-being. Once a month, Rinpoche will read and discuss with us “Letter to a Friend” or similar mind training text (Lojong). “Letter to a Friend” is one of the oldest extant letters in the Sanskrit language. It’s author, the master Nagarjuna, describes the entire buddhist path and it’s practice in poetic imagery.
This is an open course, all welcome. PLEASE NOTE: No session during School Holidays.
