8:30am VEI Class: Understanding the Sunday Chenrezi Practice
July 7 @ 8:30 am - 9:45 am PDT
Sunday, July 7
Time: 8:30 – 9:45 am
Free, donations accepted; all are welcome
In this class, we will go through the Sunday morning Chenrezi practice book, An Ocean of Compassion: Meditation on Chenrezi, page-by-page. We will explain the meaning of the text, the visualizations and the hand gestures (mudras) that should be used in each section.
Chenrezi is the key spiritual practice at Sakya Monastery and blesses us to become kinder and more compassionate, certainly a worthy and noble goal. You can become enlightened just by doing this one spiritual practice.
