The Power of Mantra
Half Day Course
Buddha Land Kadampa Buddhist Centre, Keighley
Sunday 10 June, 10am-1pm
Join us for an inspiring introduction to the ancient practice of mantra recitation. Reciting mantras reduces disturbing emotions and negativity and increases positive states of mind.
Mantra means ‘mind protection’. It is the supreme method to purify and enhance the qualities of our body and mind. For centuries mantra recitation has been used to pacify the negative thoughts that give rise to suffering and thereby attain a peaceful mind. In this course we will learn the meaning of mantra and receive instructions on how to combine mantra recitation with breathing meditation. This is a simple and powerful method to attain a calm, controlled and positive mind and ultimately it is a cause of the supreme inner peace of enlightenment.
Mantra is something we can practice at any time, which brings us many powerful short and long term benefits. It connects us with the good qualities of the enlightened mind and helps us to realize our highest potential.
The cost of the day course is £12.50 (CM £5) .
This course will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin the Resident Teacher of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley. He is a Buddhist monk with over 18 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
