Inspiration & Focus

The deeper meaning of Buddhist art and ritual

Just seeing an image of a Buddha places a potentiality on the mind that is a definite cause of enlightenment, and which nothing can destroy.”

Every Kadampa Center has a shrine. It provides a focus for our faith and serves as a reminder of the Buddhas, through whose kindness living beings have the opportunity to attain the supreme happiness of enlightenment.

Discover the beauty, meaning, and ritual involved in creating and maintaining a Kadampa shrine. Beyond simply appreciating the artistic aspects, understanding the symbolism and significance of the images and objects that make up a shrine reveals how to make progress on the Buddhist path to enlightenment.

For practitioners, it helps to have a quiet place for contemplation and relaxation at home. Having our own sacred space helps to focus our spiritual energy and improves our meditation practice. Learn the essentials for setting up a personal shrine at home.

Led by Gen Kelsang Tsoglam, Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher. Includes a brief teaching, guided meditation, and time for Q&A. Suitable for all levels of experience.

Everyone is welcome!
