An Introduction to Tantra
From Modern Buddhism, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso;
“ Tantra is very popular, but not many people understand its real meaning.”
“In his Sutra teachings Buddha gives us great encouragement to accomplish the ultimate goal of human life. This goal is accomplished through the practice of Tantra. Tantra also known as ‘Secret Mantra’ or ‘Vajrayana’, a special method to purify our world, our self, our enjoyments and our activities; if we put this method into practice we can attain enlightenment.”
At this workshop Gen Mila will give an introduction to Tantra and in particular the benefits of Highest Yoga Tantra practice.
Friday 18th June 2021, from 17:45 -19:00 with Gen Kelsang Mila
South African Dharma Celebration
The South African Dharma Celebration is a wonderful event that takes place once a year, and offers an opportunity for South Africans from all walks of life to come together to receive empowerment, listen to teachings and practice meditation. This year we will receive the empowerment of Buddha Manjushri, the Wisdom Buddha. If we wish to solve our own problems and the problems at large we definitely need wisdom. If we rely upon the wisdom of enlightened beings we can easily bring an end to all suffering.
The empowerment is a special ceremony though which we will receive powerful blessings from Manjushri, which will make our spiritual practices more powerful and especially all our practices related to Manjushri. As a result our wisdom will quickly increase and we shall be able to solve our problems on the deepest level.
The empowerment will be followed by a commentary to the practice of Manjushri, called Treasury of Wisdom, and on Sunday there will be an opportunity to be inspired by hearing about the special connection between Je Tsongkhapa, Dorje Shugden and Buddha Manjushri.
Everyone is very welcome!
From 25 to 27 June 2021, with Gen-la Kunsang
