Exploring Compassion with Lama Lodro Lhamo

November 10 @ 7:00 pm - November 12 @ 4:00 pm

Public Talk on Friday, November 10, 2017

Finding Our Compassionate Heart

The teachings of the Buddha tell us that each one of us has the potential to awaken to our basic nature of compassion, wisdom, and goodness. But in difficult times, these qualities can seem too distant and unreachable. How can we practice our compassionate heart and find the courage to love in the midst of a conflicted world?

Lama Lodro Lhamo will share teachings on the Bodhisattva Way, a method of meditation and living that help us understand others and cultivate compassion for ourselves and others.

Weekend Teaching on Saturday, November 11th and Sunday, November 12th

The Blessing of Compassion, Health and Life: The Mantra and Meditation of White Tara 

Mantra practice is an important method of meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The Buddha taught that all beings have Buddha Nature – a mind that can become awakened to its own inner wisdom and compassion – and meditating on the forms and mantras of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas helps us develop our wise and compassionate heart.

The bodhisattva Tara, the feminine aspect of compassion, lived long ago and vowed that she would only ever appear in the form of a woman to benefit suffering beings. Her vow makes her an ideal role model for both men and women today, as we struggle to find our compassionate heart in a sometimes tumultuous and conflicted world.

Learning her mantra and visualization helps us cultivate our inborn wisdom and compassion, as well as our health and vitality, as her practice has long been associated with helping those suffering from illnesses and obstacles.

Lama Lodro Lhamo, women’s retreat master at the Karme Ling Three-Year Retreat Center, is an expert in Tara practice and will share her wisdom and knowledge about White Tara and her meditation practice.

Copies of the book, “The Wish-Fulfilling Wheel: The Practice of White Tara” by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, will be available for purchase during the weekend.
