Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka Counting Retreat Special Evening Talk
Live Online • Wed 28 Sep • Replay until 30 Sep • $15
At the 2022 NKT-IKBU International Spring Festival in Malaga, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong shared an important instruction from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. Geshe Kelsang asked Gen-la Dekyong to give the transmission and commentary to the mantra of Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka, encouraging all New Kadampa Tradition Centres and practitioners to engage in retreat to collect 100,000 recitations of this mantra. By reciting this mantra with faith and a pure motivation we will place very strong potentials within our mind to easily accomplish all spiritual attainments. This retreat also includes the Vajradaka Burning Offering, a blessed and powerful method for purifying our negative karma.
At this special talk, Gen Kelsang Shechog will share essential instructions from the 2022 NKT-IKBU Spring Festival relevant to this precious retreat, and the many benefits to be gained through participating.
We will then have the opportunity to engage in a Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka counting retreat at Kadampa Meditation Centre Wellington. Together we will draw closer and closer to our Root Guru, and create very powerful actions that will cause Kadam Dharma to flourish in our hearts and throughout the world.
Gen Kelsang Shechog is a Buddhist nun and the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Auckland. Having practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism for over 16 years, her teachings are exceptionally clear and she presents profound ideas in a way that is easily accessible and applicable to modern life. Gen Shechog is much loved for her gentle manner, kind heart and for showing an inspiring example for everyone on the spiritual path.
