DISCOVERING BUDDHISM: ESTABLISHING A DAILY PRACTICE
Assemble the tools you need to develop a successful daily practice. Become familiar with all the elements necessary to generate realisations in the mind, and the practice to bless our speech for daily life. Also, receive some tips for making every action of the day meaningful, no matter how menial it seems!
This module is based on two texts. The first is the extensive daily meditation on Guru Shakyamuni Buddha. The second is the speech blessing and glance Lam Rim meditation. Both are prepared by Lama Zopa Rinpoche especially for western students.
This unit shows the rituals and meditations we need to practice in order to become enlightened. It also has essential advice on how avoid practicing for worldly reasons, how to ensure we have success in our practice, and how to make the entire meaningful, even if we have very little time for meditation. We also have an introduction to Rinpoche’s extensive daily visualisation sadhana practice on Shakyamuni Buddha. It incorporates all the aspects of the Lam Rim, with the experiential aspect of visualisation of the Buddha to integrate it deep into our psyche.
