Saturday, 30 January | 10am - 1.15pm
Join us for this half-day workshop, where you will learn about the rituals and symbolism within Buddhism in general, and within Kadampa Buddhism in particular. Each session will have plenty of time for Q&A to ensure that you walk away with answers to any questions that you may have.
Eg: Why are there so many different Buddhas? What is the symbolism behind Buddhas' appearances? Why do we make water offerings and how do we make them? What are the different aspects of a Buddhist shrine? What do the auspicious symbols mean? Why are there prayers and mantras in Buddhism? How do we structure our own meditation practice? What is Tantra?
10am - 10.45am: Session #1, Buddhist symbolism - shrine, statues, etc.
11.15am - 12noon: Session #2, Buddhist practices and beliefs - prayer, meditation, karma, past & future lives, etc.
12.30pm - 1.15pm: Session #3, The stages of the path to enlightenment - Sutra & Tantra
