Deity meditations are held on appropriate days of the calendar. Please see our Monthly Event Calendar for dates and times.
Medicine Buddha Meditation In the words of ZaChoeje Rinpoche: “We all have healing, loving, wisdom and compassion aspects.” Through the Medicine Buddha practice we invoke our own healing power and increase our self confidence so that we can bring healing to ourselves and others.
Golden Tara Meditation The Yellow-Golden Tara is the Goddess of increasing enrichment and abundance, remover of poverty and bringer of good fortune and generosity. Everyone is welcome to join us for this powerful and beneficial meditation.
Green Tara Meditation Green Tara is a feminine emanation of enlightened compassion whose activity of fearless wisdom alleviates fear and obstacles. Identifying with Green Tara';s extraordinary qualities of transcendent wisdom, omniscient awareness, fearlessness, and love and compassion allows our own aspects of these innate qualities to arise.
Chenrezig Meditation Chenrezig is the Bodhisattva of great compassion. Chanting his mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, removes our selfish attitudes and invokes the spirit of universal compassion for all beings.
Yamantaka Meditation Open to those who have received the empowerment from ZaChoeje Rinpoche or another lineage master.
The practice of Yamantaka, which helps overcome and transform the delusion of anger, belongs to the highest class of Yoga Tantra. Yamantaka, the Diamond Terrifyer, is the wrathful enlightened form of Manjushri. Wrathful meditation practice is a powerful practice and skillful means to transform destructive habitual patterns. Yamantaka represents the insight that fully understands the changing character of all impermanent phenomena as well as their emptiness nature.
Guru Yoga Tsok The Tsok offering puja is a ceremony that involves making offerings of food and drink to the Buddhas, the Bodhisattvas and our spiritual Gurus in conjunction with prayers, chanting and meditation. The ceremony is an excellent method of accumulating merit, purifying negativity and giving and receiving blessings. The Tsok offering is important for renewing commitments and averting obstacles. It is a special method through which we come under the care and guidance of the Dakas and Dakinis who bestow completion stage realization.
