Parting from the Four Attachments: 10.30-13.00
Lama Jampa will give teachings on Parting from the Four Attachments using the commentary by Nubkyi Rigzin Drak. This teaching is an excellent introduction to the graduated path of meditation, accessible to both the beginner and the more experienced alike. A special feature of this text is the manner in which the system of Parting from the Four Attachments is interwoven with that of the Four Dharmas.
This teaching is open to all those with an interest in Buddhism.

Initiation of Chenrezik Mahamudra*: 2.30pm – 4.30pm
This initiation bestows the authority to meditate on Chenrezik, the embodiment of compassionate energy, and on Mahamudra – the Great Seal – which is the true nature of mind. It is one of the most widespread meditation practices in Vajrayana Buddhism. This initiation is connected with the famous sadhana composed by the great Sakyapa master Ngorchen Konchog Lhundrup and is from the lineage of Bari Lotsawa.
There is a group practise of this mediation on the first Sunday of each month (10.30-11.30am) at the Sakya Buddhist Centre in Bristol. Those who have received this initiation are welcome to attend. Through meditation upon Chenrezik we quickly develop compassion and conjoined with Mahamudra we are also benefited by meditating directly on the nature of mind.
*Please note that in order to receive the initiation you must have made a formal commitment to the Buddhist path through taking refuge. If you would like to do this beforehand please contact the centre by emailing: email@example.com
Fee: £25 (teaching and initiation); £15 (teaching only ending 1pm). Concessions by request.
