EVERYONE WELCOME!

Samudra Kadampa Buddhist Centre

The first Friday of each month special prayers are made for the benefit of the deceased. Powa Ceremony is performed to try and help the deceased attain the great good fortunate of taking rebirth in a Pure Land.  Everyday millions of beings pass away with little prospect of attaining any freedom from the impure existence of ordinary life. These prayers can definitely benefit others and also create powerful potentialities for us to take rebirth in a Pure Land.

 

FIRST FRIDAY EACH MONTH  7 – 8 pm     EVERYONE WELCOME

 

Rid yourself of the stress accumulated during the week and begin your weekend on a happy note with prayers and meditation. Each week the practices of Heart Jewel and Meditation & Recitation of Solitary Vajrasattva are alternated. Heart Jewel is the essence practice of Kadampa Buddhism whereby we accumulate both vast merit and the seeds of great wisdom, as well as, protection from outer and inner obstacles. In the second practice, through meditation and mantra recitation, we purify our accumulated negative potentialities. Such potentialities are accumulated whenever we engage in harmful actions towards others. It is these unrecognized subtle potentialities that are the substantial cause of all of our mental and physical suffering, and if we purify them we shall be able to avoid suffering and problems.

 

FRIDAYS 7 – 8 PM       EVERYONE WELCOME

 

Twice each month Offering to the Spiritual Guide prayers are recited and function mainly to develop a powerful connection with our Spiritual Guide. If we create such a relationship we shall have no difficulty in attaining all of our spiritual objectives and ultimately we shall attain the bliss of full enlightenment. Participants normally bring an offering of pure food or drink and imagine transforming it, so that it fills to whole of space, which is then offered to our Spiritual Guide as supreme bliss.
