The meditation on the pure, clear nature of the mind, or Mahamudra, is extremely powerful in helping us overcome our distractions, enabling us to settle our minds like a still ocean, blissful and at peace. Mahamudra meditation also increases our wisdom insight into the nature of reality, makes our body and mind comfortable, increases our bliss, helps us overcome distraction in meditation, and gives us insight into some of Buddha’s more hidden teachings such as karma and the continuity of consciousness over many lives. Please join us at Je Tsongkhapa Kadampa Buddhist Center for a day of teachings, contemplation, and practice of this extraordinary meditation. As always, there will be many opportunities to ask questions, discuss and meditate. Don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of one of the most extraordinary spiritual treasures in our world, Mahamudra meditation.
