refuge-tree

 

By popular request we will practice Ngondro every Sunday.  Our schedule will be as follows:

-Refuge 10 am – recitations and prostrations

-Vajrasattva 11am – recitation, meditation, and purification

In samsara, there are three types of suffering – suffering in the making, the suffering of change, and the suffering of suffering. Ones should meditate with fierce renunciation in the knowledge that the intrinsic nature of these three is like a building blazing with fire. Having established the difficulty of obtaining the freedoms and advantages, ones should train in the ordinary preliminaries, and then undertake them.

The founder to the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, Lord Jigten Sumgon stated, “Ngondro is even more important than the higher practices.” It has also been said that sincerely practicing only Ngondro will lead to enlightenment since all mind training techniques leading to enlightenment are included within it!

If you have always wanted to complete the preliminaries, but needed the support of a group, or are new and want to deepen your understanding and commitment this Sunday practice is for you.

Beginners are very welcome at this practice.

* After the practice we will have an optional pot luck lunch for those who wish to enjoy the good company and quietude of the Sahuarita location. *
