The Buddha’s Mangala Sutta: the union of loving-kindness and awareness, Winnipeg, MB
September 14, 2012 – September 17, 2012 UTC-8
By request, Lama Yongdu will be giving teachings and meditations from the Buddha’s Mangala Sutta or the ‘Discourse on Blessings’. Lama Yongdu will weave ancient wisdom with modern insights to bring forth beautiful meditations that can really help in the intelligent gathering and development of life’s countless blessings.
Lama Mark writes:
“So many people ask, ‘How do we mindfully, lovingly and wisely be with others and ourselves?’ We need lots and lots of blessings! And to gather a wealth of strength and merit. The most important factors in unfolding a blessed life have not changed radically since the time of the Buddha. This pithy and elegant text clarifies what we truly need and what harms us in our efforts to become Awake and compassionate. We are all surrounded by blessings. However, many can not discern what they are or they actively shun them. And we will arrive at the essential contemplation: ‘What is the highest blessing?’.”
