Pure Like A Stainless Moon

The Practice of the 35 Confession Buddhas

With Gen Kelsang Namkhyen

In the past, either in this life or previous lives, we have all engaged in negative actions and as a result we experience problems and suffering continually. We also find it difficult to make progress on the spiritual path. On this day course we learn how to purify all this negative karma through engaging in the practice of the 35 Confession Buddhas. By relying upon this practice we can swiftly purify even the heaviest negative actions. Since purification is the root of future happiness and spiritual realisations, we are very fortunate to have the opportunity to become familiar with this practice.

31 Dec – 1 Jan | Tara Six Session Chanting

A Blissful Start of the New Year

With Kriss Barker

If we rely upon Mother Tara sincerely and with strong faith she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfill all our wishes. Since she is a wisdom Buddha, and since she is a manifestation of the completely purified wind element, Tara is able to help us very quickly.

If we recite the twenty-one verses of praise we shall receive inconceivable benefits. These praises are very powerful because they are Sutra, the actual words of Buddha. It is good to recite them as often as we can.

Here we engage in Tara practice in six sessions over 24-hours. The sessions are about 1 hr 15 min long, and are done every four hours.

Everyone is welcome to attend any or all the sessions. No experience is necessary. Entrance is free.

3-5 Feb. | Away Retreat

Healing our Mind, Healing the World

With Gen Kelsang Namkhyen

The best way to heal our mind from worry, anxiety, depression or anger is to develop love and compassion for others. The best way to heal our world and solve it’s many problems is also to develop love and compassion for others. If we cherish all living beings by our very presence we remove negativity from the world and give back loving kindness, healing both ourself as well as others. On this retreat we learn how to change the object of our cherishing from ourself to other living beings, through which we will come to experience true peace and happiness ourself, and be of great benefit to others.

The retreat is held at Goedgedacht Farm which is located on the mountain slopes of the picturesque Riebeek Valley, only an hour from the metropolis of Cape Town.
