Unfolding Confidence in Profound Intent
February 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – February 28, 2019 @ 9:00 pm Pacific/Auckland
2019 Teachings in Queenstown
With Lama Mark Webber
February 1 to February 25, 2019 (3 weeks)
The main theme of February’s teachings and guidance by Lama Mark Webber is unfolding confidence in Profound Intent. Mental intent shapes what we do, what we say and what we think about. By giving a wide range of teachings, transmissions and meditations for those new to Buddha-dharma and for those very experienced, we learn how to shift from unwholesome intent, good intent, beatific intent to utterly profound intent. Utterly profound intent is recognizing the unity of naturally unobstructed mind and infinite compassion—called bodhicitta.
