Meet the Buddhas
Drop-in Meditation Classes
Livestreamed Online & In-Person
Tuesdays 7.30pm – 9pm
(available for 48 hours after on catch up)
‘Buddha’ means ‘Awakened One,’ someone who has awakened from the sleep of ignorance and sees the truth perfectly. Many people have become Buddhas in the past, and we all have the potential to become a Buddha in the future.
Learn about the different qualities of the various Buddhas and their practices in this series of classes.
In this series of classes, Gen Päljin will give commentary to the features and qualities of the Buddhas commonly turned to by Kadampa practitioners due to our strong karmic connection with them. With each Buddha, there is an associated practice, or sadhana – a method for accomplishing the qualities of that Buddha.
Each class will focus on the practice of an individual Buddha, and we will engage in the sadhana – the chanted prayers, visualisations and meditations contained within the prayer booklet.
If you are interested in a particular practice, please contact us with your request.
These classes will be taught by Gen Kelsang Päljin, the Resident Teacher of Buddha Land Buddhist Centre, Keighley, and of Burnley Kadampa Buddhist Centre. He is a Buddhist monk with over 20 years’ experience of practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism.
