Heart Jewel ~ Sunday 12 February, 10.00 – 1.00
The book Heart Jewel presents two practices revealed by Manjushri, the Wisdom Buddha. The first is a special Guru Yoga in which we visualize our Spiritual Guide as Je Tsongkhapa, who himself is an emanation of Buddha Manjushri. By relying upon this practice we can purify negativity, accumulate merit, and receive blessings. In this way we shall naturally accomplish all the realizations of the stages of the path of Sutra and Tantra, and in particular we shall attain a very special Dharma wisdom.
The second practice is a method for relying upon the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Through this practice we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favourable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our pure Dharma realizations.
These two practices are the essential practices of the New Kadampa Tradition of Mahayana Buddhism. They are both included in the sadhanas Heart Jewel and Wishfulfilling Jewel.
In these few sessions we will look at some of these essential practices as explained in the book Heart Jewel.
