We are pleased to announce that we are planning to deliver a special programme of 12 teachings, initially online, each Monday evening at our regular time of 7.30pm.
The programme will cover 6 alternating sessions each, from the 2 different teachings described below;
Prajnaparamitra the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra – “The Wisdom Practice” – Presented by Geoff Warren
Prajnaparamitra the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, the Mantra that dispels Obstacles
Tayatha Om Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Soha. This practise is very auspicious in this time of pandemic both to remove obstacles & to develop the wisdom to realise the true nature of phenomena.
Prajnaparamitra is the female Buddha of wisdom, she is the consort of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.
During each session there will be a short teaching on the Sutra & Mantra recitation.
Meta Bhavana – ”Loving Kindness Practice” – Presented by Steve Reynolds
Metta Bhavana means the development of friendliness and loving kindness and is the first of The Four Limitless Contemplations that we do each week in our sessions. It is the foundation for developing Bodhicitta, the mind of enlightenment and compassion.
Each session will grow and develop the practice, so we can reach a greater insight into the Buddha’s teaching on loving kindness.
As a way for us to become more open, accepting and loving, it can enable us and others to be happy.
Each session will be introduced as usual by Bob, who will lead our normal prayers and provide a topical reading, before closing each meeting after the special teachings.
The meetings will be over the free Zoom App as usual and you can enter ‘The waiting room’ from 7.00pm to test your equipment if needed and can participate with or without your own cam. We will post readings and materials on the website after the meeting.
If anyone needs help setting up Zoom, get in contact by email or use the contact form on the homepage and we will try and help you. We will also email you a meeting login.
