Meditation and discussion

Holy relics of Geshe Lama Konchog at Potowa Prayer Hall

This service is offered twice a month, usually on the second and forth Wednesdays of the month unless there are other events that take precedence. We will commence the session with guided (by audio) meditation followed by reading & discussion of a Dharma text. Currently, we are reading the commentary text by Geshe Tenzin Zopa called "The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas" which is downloadable from here

The 37 practices of Bodhisattvas is a famous Buddhist text composed by a great Bodhisattva Gyelsay Togmay Zangpo (1295 - 1369). The text laid down 37 specific ways of mind training in order to become a Bodhisattva and eventually a Buddha. The study of this commentary text is essential for anyone who is inspired to seek lasting happiness and wanting to learn more about becoming a Bodhisattva and a Buddha.

Tara Puja

Mother Tara, or Green Tara

Tara Puja is offered once a month. Green Tara or just Tara is known as "Mother of all Buddhas", a key Buddha feature and practice for all Tibetan Buddhists. It is said that 21 Taras are formed from the tears of Buddha of Compassion (Avalokiteshvara) and these 21 Taras are represented by Green Tara. Why did Avalokiteshvara cry? Come and join us for this Puja which is newly offered recently, we'll share with you more on Mother Tara.

A brief note on Mother Tara's mantra and its benefit is available here and explained more extensively here.
