Mandala Workshop: Creating a Pure World

March 26 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

R120.00 – R240.00

Do you want to live in a Pure World, surrounded by pure beings?


In this workshop, you will learn practical methods of how to create such a future for yourself and others.


The Buddhist practice of offering the mandala is a profound method for accumulating a vast amount of merit or positive mental energy. In this instance mandala means the Pure Land of a Buddha generated through the power of correct imagination. It is a scientific method to attain the Pure Land of a Buddha which means that through this practice we will cause ourselves to experience a pure environment inhabited by pure beings engaging in pure activities as a pure being ourself in the future.


‘Offering the mandala is the best method for freeing ourself from future poverty and for creating the cause of rebirth in a Buddha’s Pure Land. By making mandala offerings we lessen our attachment to worldly enjoyments and possessions and accumulate a vast collection of merit. As a result we experience a gradual increase of our enjoyments, wealth and good conditions. Our temporary wishes are fulfilled and finally we will attain our ultimate goal, full enlightenment. If we wish to experience these benefits we should familiarize ourself with the practice of offering the mandala.’


 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche from New Guide To Dakini Land.


In this day workshop Gen Jampel will explain how to engage in this practice and we will have an opportunity to practically learn and practice making Mandala offerings.
