Fridays, 10-11:00am ~ Avalokiteshvara Prayers for World Peace

Avalokiteshvara Prayers for World Peace
Fridays 10:00-11:00am

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

 

Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being who is a manifestation of all Buddhas’ compassion.

Making prayers to him for a peaceful mind is a powerful way to bring peace to ourselves, others and all to living beings. Each prayer session includes a short dharma teaching on achieving a peaceful mind, prayers and a short meditation.

“If everyone prays to be able to cherish other living beings, then gradually though the power of this prayer, everyone will actually cherish each other. The world will then be permanently at peace, and pure and everlasting happiness will pervade the entire world.”        Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

 Please join Teacher Allen Howe in these weekly prayers.  There is no charge, though donations are always welcome.

At Kadampa Centers worldwide, the eighth of the month is Tara Day. Tara is a female Buddha, whose name means Rescuer; she is the embodiment of swift compassion.  If we rely upon Tara sincerely and with strong faith, she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfill all our wishes. Everyone is welcome and invited to join us for Tara’s chanted prayer practice, “Liberation from Sorrow”.
