Calm abiding meditation is the most fundamental of all Buddhist meditation practices. Using the tool of mindfulness one learns to bring a sense of stability and clarity to the mind. An increase in emotional stability and a decrease in mental confusion will help negotiate more helpful responses when confronted with life problems. Meditation is ultimately about experiencing the opening up of our heart and mind to compassion and to wisdom. In this year’s retreat Lama Choedak Rinpoche will also be giving teaching on, and transmission for, the practice of Vajrasattva meditation.
How to Change Your Karma through Vajrasattva Meditation
Karma is an understanding of the workings of the law of cause and effect of what one does. Karma is not destiny or fate. It is not what happens to us but rather what one can do to change situations by consciously knowing how to adopt some and how to reject other conducts. There are certain signs of karmic patterns that can be modified and changed through a prescribed meditative technique known as Vajrasattva (diamond being). In this special workshop, one will receive the transmission and knowledge how to use this profound Tibetan Buddhist meditation technique which is used daily by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
