An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until June 13, 2023
In Buddhism we learn the power of chanted prayers especially those done in a group. These prayers take our mind on a journey of meaning, which if done sincerely can be profoundly transformative. There is one prayer which is very special within our Tradition called The Liberating Prayer. It makes up a part of almost every class, retreat and course run at Kadampa Centres worldwide.
Very soon we all fall in love with the pacifying effect of The Liberating Prayer.
Venerable Geshe-la, who composed the prayer, explained that it is not an ordinary prayer and contains a great depth of meaning which is not initially evident. He further explained that we need a teacher to reveal these deeper meanings to us in order to fully appreciate this prayer.
Before he passed away Venerable Geshe-la gave an oral transmission of these meanings to Gen-la Dekyong and at this year’s International Kadampa Spring Festival Gen-la Dekyong will be sharing this with us. Our Resident Teacher, Gen Jampel, will receive these teachings directly and share them with us in these special classes.
