Supreme Unchanging Friend: Blessed Commentary to the Liberating Prayer from Spring Festival 2023
With Folded Hands I turn to you
Supreme unchanging friend
I request from depths of my heart
One of the most central practices at Kadampa Meditation Centers is the recitation and contemplation of the Liberating Prayer. This brief and beautiful praise to Buddha Shakyamuni, composed by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso directly for us, is a profound exploration of the nature of enlightenment that allows us to open up to and connect with the blessings of the Buddhas, thereby greatly inspiring us on our own path to enlightenment.
Gen Gomlam will guide meditations and share insights based on blessed commentary from Spring Festival 2023, that will allow us to go deeper in our own contemplations on this beautiful, poetic, inspiring prayer.
“Liberating Prayer is not an ordinary prayer – It is like a text and has profound meaning. All Lamrim teachings – renunciation, bodhichitta, and correct view of emptiness are included in this prayer. I can say very few people understand Liberating Prayer. It definitely needs verbal commentary by a Teacher. If we understand and contemplate its meaning – it is the best method to develop faith in Buddha and his teachings, which is our spiritual life and the root of all Dharma realizations.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
