Description

The Practice of the 35 Confession Buddhas



Sat 4 & Sun 5 May with Gen Kelsang Gomchen

Learn how to engage in a powerful purification practice which will help us let go of negativity and develop a happy and healthy body and mind.

This ancient practice was taught by Buddha himself in the Mahayana Sutra of Three Superior Heaps. This practice is an especially powerful practice of purification and if done regularly, we can eventually remove all the obstacles to realizing our potential for enlightenment and become a Buddha ourself with a completely pure body, speech and mind.

Please note: the practice includes the physical action of making prostrations but can be adapted to suit all levels of mobility, including just reciting and engaging mentally. For those able, who wish to participate in making physical prostrations (which involves stretching the body out full length on the floor), it is advised to wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat if possible as we have a wooden floor at the temple.

What will each session consist of?
Each session will include a combination of teachings and guided meditations with an opportunity to ask questions at the end and socialize with like-minded people during the break time.

Do I need to bring anything or wear anything special?
No. All sessions will take place on chairs but there are optional cushions if you prefer to sit cross-legged. You don’t need to bring anything else with you, but some people like to take notes during the session, so feel free to bring a paper and pen.
