About the event

Join Lama Zangmo to learn about the Ngondro, a practice text by the 9th Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje, consisting of the four ordinary foundations and the four special foundations.

The four Ordinary Foundations are contemplations on the four thoughts that turn the mind to the Dharma, namely the preciousness of human life, impermanence, karma, cause and effects, and the sufferings of samsara.

The four Special Foundations are purification and accumulation practices and are covered by the following practices: prostrations, recitations of the Dorje Sempa hundred syllable mantra, mandala offerings and guru yoga practice.

The function of the prostrations is to deepen our sense of refuge in the Three Jewels and take root in the Lineage, and help us appreciate the importance of Dharma practice. It is a method of purification of obscurations and accumulation of merit.

On this day Lama Zangmo will give instructions on how to start the first of the special foundations, the prostrations.

This course is suitable for those who have already taken REFUGE and who wish to start the practice of prostrations. For questions about whether to join this course, please contact the office or speak to Lama Zangmo.

You will need to bring a Ngondro text to the teachings. (available from the shop).

The £5 registration fee is not a payment for the course. There is no charge for our courses and teachings, but donations to help cover the costs of running the centre are very welcome.
