On Galiano Island
January 19 & 20, 2019
- Saturday January 19th: Bodhicitta: Generating the Enlightened Mind of Profound Intent.
9:30 am -11:30 am: Reading transmission and teachings on Thogme Zangpo’s (13th cent.) famous text called The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas.
Many great texts say that the heartfelt wish and activity to awaken for one’s self and all other beings is essential for the bodhisattva stages and complete Awakening. This is the search and discovery of primordial wakefulness, called Bodhicitta—the enlightenment mind. How to generate relative and ultimate Bodhicitta—thinking and doing like a bodhisattva.
- Saturday January 19th & Sunday January 20th: Je Gampopa’s text: The Single Sufficient Path of Mahamudra.
Saturday 19th, 2:30 – 4:30 pm and Sunday January 20th, 9:30 am -11:30 am & 2:30 – 4:30 pm: Mahamudra, or ‘great seal’, is the view of all experience as it is. The great seal is also the meditation and the fruition—total awakeness and compassion. It describes the preparations, graduated steps we take and the natural mode of mind free of all obscurations.
Lama Mark Webber will be giving a reading transmission, teachings and meditations on Je Gampopa’s (11th cent.) essence text: The Single Sufficient Path of Mahamudra. This is an elegant and direct instruction of the essence-ground of mind, the meditations and path we need to follow and the result; the inseparable unity of wisdom and compassion.
Je Gampopa was one of Tibet’s greatest masters.
Location: Namgyal Choling Gompa, 455-2555 Cook Rd. Galiano Island, BC. Canada.
