Heart Jewel

The Very Essence of Kadampa Buddhism

Join us for an exploration of Heart Jewel Prayers, the essential practices of Kadampa Buddhism. This special presentation of Mahayana Buddhism makes the path to enlightenment accessible to the modern world by showing clearly how we can transform our lives into the spiritual path.

In the book, Heart Jewel, author Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, a meditation master of this living tradition, explains the two aspects of these special prayers spiritual practices. 

The first part is a special meditation practice through which we receive blessings and gain the realizations of the path to enlightenment. The second is meditation on the Buddha of Wisdom in the aspect of a Dharma Protector, whereby we can gain the inner strength needed to overcome all obstacles to our spiritual practice.
