The Chenrezig Practice is the most widely practised Tibetan Buddhist meditation which involves recitation, a visualisation and mantras. It is designed to stabilise the mind in compassion. We will be doing this practice together in Tibetan with English translation. It involves a simple visualisation, reading the text together and reciting the mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum”. Through doing this practice, we invoke love and compassion for all sentient beings in the form of Chenrezig, a symbol of the compassion of all Buddhas. All are welcome, no previous experience or knowledge of Buddhism required.
13:00 – 13:40
