An Evening of Buddhist Study & Cultivation:
A Practice to Receive the Blessings of Shakyamuni Buddha
Thurs July 24, 7pm – 8:30pm
To those who RSVP, we will email the webcast login information.
Please plan to sign on 10 minutes early.
We will have our fourth opportunity of the week to do the Shakyamuni Buddha practice that is unique to our lineage. Our lama Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche passed this practice to us for the first time one month ago. People reported feeling more energetic, more light and bright in their minds, more compassionate and close to the Buddha’s heart. Rinpoche anticipated this big effect that and then saw that it functioned that way. He is encouraging us to share this teaching broadly and to perform it several times a week.
This will have a quick effect on our minds so the numb will be replaced with the vibrant mind. If you are curious about Buddhism you will be able to see how Buddhist study and practice can start to soften us and awaken us to the expansive mind that lays within you.
These classes are open and suitable to all people.
On Wednesday evenings we are gathering in several local bay area groups, so if you know of someone in another area, we may be able to help connect them. Also, on Thursdays we meet by webcast, allowing a wider circle to participate. Study and practice is led by senior disciples under the direction of Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche. Interested students will have opportunities to attend classes with Rinpoche during his summer series.
About our Lama
Namnang Mingjo Dorje Rinpoche is the 68th lineage holder of Nagavara Raja Lineage. He has studied all forms of Buddhism from the three vehicles. He is very familiar with what present-day cultivators need, what we lack and how to best help us.
“Developing the qualities of humility, honesty, kindness, and purity is the first step towards successful cultivation.”
Rinpoche not only teaches us Buddha’s teaching or knowledge, but also leads students to do the practices that will help them the most. Methods that we learn are connected together and will become sets of special practices so our mind starts to transform in the direction of the Buddha’s mind. You will learn how to apply Buddha’s teachings effectively and efficiently in your daily life. Rinpoche will guide and ensure that you are able to enter Buddha's correct Dharma path.
