SPEAK PEACE WITH COMPASSIONATE COMMUNICATION

April 29, 2017 - 1:00pm - 5:00pm
 
Whether frustrated by a 'no' from your child, triggered by a judgement from an adult, or upset about a divisive policy of a politician, our ability to be present and empathetic toward ourselves and others can make the difference between a breakdown and a breakthrough. Compassionate Communication™ excels in providing practical ways to relate to others and to get to the heart of what is really behind criticisms, resistance, and judgements. With compassion and understanding, more peaceful connection and outcomes become possible. 
 

 

Saka Dawa Celebration with Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa

Lama Yeshe Ling is very fortunate to have Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa lead us in practice to honour Saka Dawa. Saka Dawa is one of the most important festival days of the Tibetan Buddhist calendar, celebrating Shakyamuni Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and parinirvana. Any actions done during Saka Dawa, both auspicious and harmful, are multiplied in their power. Karmic results are multiplied by one hundred million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic. It is a very powerful time to practice and increase one’s commitment to both practice and study.

Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa will be staying the weekend to offer a Cittamani Tara Empowerment.

Tara is the an embodiment of active compassion of all the Buddhas, she provides quick assistance to those who call upon her. Tara the liberator removes obstacles and empowers us to reach enlightenment within this very body, this very life. Cittamani Tara, is a rare highest yoga tantra form of Tara. The practice of Cittamani Tara, the heart jewel or wish fulfilling jewel, is a body mandala that focuses on the winds, channels and drops of the divine body.

“Tara can solve many problems in your life: she can liberate you from untimely death; help you recover from disease; bring you success in business; help you find a job; and bring you wealth. When you have a really serious problem, such as a life-threatening disease, if you rely on Tara, commonly you will be freed from that problem, or you will recover from that disease… These are common experiences… Tara’s meditation practice is quick to grant success in obtaining the ultimate happiness of enlightenment.” Lama Zopa Rinpoche (Kopan 1987)

Commitment: Minimum daily practice of Cittamani Tara Sadhana or short Cittamani Tara Guru Yoga and one mala of mantras daily for life.

Highly regarded for his scholarship and depth of religious practice, Rinpoche teaches frequently in New York, Washington D.C., and at Do Ngak Kunphen Ling (DNKL), a Tibetan Buddhist center in Connecticut, where he hosted a visit from the Dalai Lama in 2012.
