Format for each session:

  • Meditation begins at 10 am with opening chants by the instructor:

Four Dharmas of Gampopa: Grant your blessings so that my mind may be one with the dharma/ Grant your blessings so that dharma may progress along the path/ Grant your blessings so that the path may clarify confusion/Grant your blessings so that confusion may dawn as wisdom.

Proclamation of Goodness: May basic goodness dawn/ May the confidence of goodness be eternal/ May goodness be all-victorious/ May that goodness bring profound brilliant glory!

  • Guidance into meditation practice
  • Break for stretching, getting a drink, etc
  • Second meditation session.
  • Dharma discussion: Open for questions about meditation or other topics related to our lives and Buddhist teachings.
  • Dedications of Merit:

By this merit, may all attain omniscience/ May it defeat the enemy, wrongdoing/ From the stormy waves of birth, old age, sickness and death/ From the ocean of samsara, may I free all beings.

By the confidence of the golden sun of the great east/ May the lotus garden of the Rigden’s wisdom bloom/ May the dark ignorance of sentient beings be dispelled/ May all beings enjoy profound brilliant glory.
