Saturday, November 28th, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
The word “Mantra” literally means “mind protection”. Through reciting a mantra we can protect our mind from negativity and keep it focused on positive thoughts and feelings in daily life.
There is a beautiful Buddhist prayer, known as the “four immeasurables”, that can be used as a mantra throughout the day to keep our mind focused, happy, and well motivated.
This special prayer is as follows:
“May everyone be happy,
May everyone be free from misery,
May no-one ever be separated from their happiness,
May everyone have equanimity, free from hatred, and attached”
With this prayer we are wishing for everyone to experience equanimity, true happiness, freedom from problems, and internal joy. This powerful prayer fills our mind with positive energy and, if everyone was to hold its meaning in their heart, world peace would be accomplished overnight.
In this half day course Gen Dorje will explain the meaning of this prayer and how we can use it as a mantra in daily life to benefit ourselves and others.
