The Sadhana of Mahamudra

July 12 / 7:30 PM - December 21 / 8:00 PM

This is the recitation of the Sadhana of Mahamudra, a chant with includes periods of meditation practice and contemplation periods. The practice is 45 - 60 minutes in duration and is one of the very few higher level practices that is open to anyone who wishes to participate (some meditation experience is recommended).

This practice is generally done as a group at the time of the new and full moons and is intended to help alleviate discursive or busy mind often experienced during those times. While one might normally consider words of the chant the most important it is also the energetic quality of the flow of the chant as well that makes this a significant practice. Many will connect with both. Historically, the Sadhana is an ancient text (translated from Tibetan) that applies to modern times. It is known as a terma text and was received by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche as he meditated at a site where Padmasambhava, an eighth century Guru/Sage once practiced. Feel free to ask more about this practice.
