By Lama Mark Webber

September 15 to 19, 2016

  1. September 15 to 18th (5 classes): Looking Deeply into Karma and Causality: enhancing our meditations at all levels. Lama Mark writes: “Understanding karma—cause and effect and habit patterns—is a key teaching of Buddhism and is essential to all our study, reflection and meditations. Whether our meditations are in the style of modern Vipassana, practices of compassion or Tantric Deity Yoga, Mahamudra or Dzogchen, form or formless, causality is at the heart of all our practices.” I often recalls the Ven. Namgyal Rinpoche saying, “the main thing hindering beings’ progress in meditation is not more meditation, but their karma. Free up karma and meditation is unhindered.” He will take us stage by stage, ever deepening the discoveries of wisdom that are made when we re-investigate karma at multiple levels. A study guide on Karma and it’s meditations, by Lama Mark will be made available for these classes.
