Prayers are neither small nor passive actions. Rather, they are a force for change in our shared world. Join us to bring peace to our world through the action of meditating together and dedicating our prayers for world peace. The morning includes a guided meditation, talk on Buddhism applied to daily life & a traditional chanted prayer in English.
Everyone is welcome!
Take a break and de-stress from the pressure of your day so you can return refreshed and nourished. We all have much more to give in a peaceful way when we’ve first taken care of ourselves.
Great Mother Prajnaparamita is a female Buddha who is the manifestation of Buddha’s perfection of wisdom. Her function is to overcome maras – the causes of inner and outer obstacles – and to bestow the realization of the higher perfection of wisdom, which gives birth to the mind of enlightenment.
(Recordings will be available for a week to watch at your convenience)
With the blessings of the Great Mother Prajnaparamita, we have the opportunity to learn how to use our understanding of ultimate truth to purify our mind and our world. How wonderful!
