The Jewel Ornament of Liberation
Gampopa’s summary of the whole path in a single verse.
The cause is buddha nature;
The support is supremely precious human life;
The condition is a qualified spiritual guide;
The method is the oral instructions;
The result is the perfect awakening of buddhahood;
The enlightened activity is acting for the benefit of beings.
Khentrul Rinpoche will teach on this verse, a summary of one of the most acclaimed and respected treatises today – The Jewel Ornament of Liberation – a teaching on the entire path by the great master Gampopa. Gampopa was one of the five founding masters of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism and a celebrated student of the legendary yogi Milarepa.

We meet for meditation on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM

Calm-Abiding meditation is a non-denominational guided meditation, open to anyone and everyone, including those who have never meditated, as well as long-term practitioners. Using the breath as a focus, we sit for 30 minutes of silence.
Guided Tonglen meditation for 15 minutes follows the Calm-Abiding meditation. This is a practice for developing compassion. Using the breath, imagining we are taking away suffering from others giving them our happiness, helps loosen our attachment to our own disturbing emotions. By training in the perspective we can completely change our outlook and transform our lives.
