10:30am – 1:00pm: Reply to Nymo Gomchen by Sakya Pandita

This text consists of a series of questions, put to Sakya Pandita, concerning the essence of dharma and the stages of practice. In his responses, Sakya Pandita clearly defines the dharma and describes its fundamental constituents. He removes confusion about the lama and emptiness, and points out the need to balance study with meditation.

White Tara

2:30 -4.30pm:  Initiation of White Tara

The goddess Tara is revered in all traditions of Vajrayana Buddhism as the embodiment of the liberating activity of all buddhas. White Tara is one of the three deities of longevity whose practice is renowned for bestowing the blessings of long life and thus increasing the opportunity for spiritual practice. This initiation is from the lineage of Shakya Shribhadra (1125-1225), the great Mahapandita from Kashmir.

*Please note that in order to attend the afternoon teaching you must have made formal commitment to the Buddhist path through the act of taking refuge. If you would like to request refuge from Lama Jampa prior to the initiation please contact london@dechen.org.
