Offering Our Faith • Unguided Retreat

Celebrating our precious Spiritual Guide

Every day we remember the extraordinary kindness of Venerable Geshe-la, our Root Guru and Founder of the New Kadampa Tradition.

At Kadampa centres around the world, with minds of rejoicing and gratitude, we offer him our faith through using the special prayer ‘Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso from his Faithful Disciples’ and collecting our Guru’s name mantra.

In this retreat we will be using the sadhana ‘The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra’ and the special request prayer ‘Request to the Holy Spiritual Guide Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso from his Faithful Disciples’. We will conclude the retreat with ‘Offering to the Spiritual Guide’ chanted prayers.

Prayer booklets will be available at the Centre for use during the sessions.

Pot-luck lunch

Bring along a plate of vegetarian or vegan food to share for lunch.

COST

Each session is free of charge, just drop in to any or all of them. If you are able to attend only one session, do try to come to the first one as it includes an introduction.
