Donations for Roof Repairs to Teacher’s House

Teachings by Geshe Zopa (In Person) at HBC

The Four Immeasurables 1, 8, 15 and 22 Jun at 7.30pm
We are so grateful that English speaking Geshe Zopa has kindly agreed to take a short break from his retreat to give these teaching at Hayagriva.

The Four Immeasurables are so called as they are directed towards an immeasurable number of beings. These qualities help transform the way we look at ourselves and others by breaking down the barriers we create in our interactions.
Equanimity involves freedom from strong reactions (positive or negative) to others and events.
Love involves wanting others (even those who annoy you) to have happiness.
Compassion is the wish everyone be free from pain and its causes.
Joy is taking delight in the happiness of others.

Suitable for new or experienced students

Vajrasattva Purification Retreat @ HBC – 1 to 5pm 19 Jun 2021

The Vajrasattva mantra is a powerful practice to purify negative karma and a quick way to transform your mind. It is a kind of detox of the mind.

FPMT’s founder, Lama Yeshe (1935 – 84) said: “the Vajrasattva practice can purify all negative energy; there is no negativity that Vajrasattva meditation cannot purify.”

There will be a short explanation of the practice followed by several sessions led by Owen Cole. Owen has done a three-month Vajrasattva and other retreats.

No initiation is necessary though an understanding of Buddhist principles and karma is useful.

All welcome.
