34t (1)The Heart Jewel practice is the heart essence of Kadampa Buddhism. In the first part of the session, we practice the Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa and make prayers and requests to purify negativity, and accumulate merit. This prepares our mind for a 15-minute guided meditation based on The New Meditation Handbook. In the second part of the practice, we rely upon the Wisdom Dharma Protector, which helps us to overcome obstacles to our spiritual practice and creates favorable conditions.

All our prayers and meditation practices are recited in English with beautiful, easy-to-learn melodies and CD accompaniment.

Everyone is welcome to participate in these beautiful prayers. We recommend that you arrive about ten minutes early to be seated and relaxed at the start of the session.
