Ganden Lha Gyama Mini Reatreat (Lama Tsong Khapa meditation)

December 29 1:00pm to 9:00pm (three sessions)

This winter break, we are offering the opportunity for intensive group meditation practice.  You are welcome to attend the full event or as many sessions as you are able to. We will share food we each bring - for special diets please bring food for yourself.

Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche advised, “If one keeps even a drop of the nectar of the name of this holy being Lama Tsongkhapa in a devotional heart, it plants the seed of liberation and one receives the fortune to practice and enjoy happiness from this life up to enlightenment.”

Also known as the Hundred Deities of Tushita (Ganden Lha Gyama), it is a seven-limb practice related to Lama Tsongkhapa, a great Tibetan scholar, saint, and yogi of the 14th century. To supplement and complete this short text, Lama Zopa Rinpoche has added a preliminary practice of the “Four Immeasurable Thoughts,” the lam-rim prayer “Foundation of All Good Qualities” by Lama Tsongkhapa, and two visualizations to do while reciting the “Five-Line Migtsema Prayer to Lama Tsongkhapa,” one for purifying negative karmas and one for achieving seven special types of wisdom. The appendices consist of short teachings by Lama Zopa Rinpoche on how to do extensive meditations on making offerings, confessing, and rejoicing.  Lama Tsongkhapa Guru Yoga is a particularly powerful practice for receiving the blessings of one's personal teacher and developing the realization of guru devotion.
