Powa: A Practice of Compassion for the Deceased day course with Gen Kelsang Gomchen
Saturday 8 December | 10am – 4:30pm
Cost: £30 including lunch
Learn a special method to help those who have recently died, whereby through faith, compassion and concentration we transfer their consciousness to a Buddha’s Pure Land.
This day course will explain how to engage in the profound practice of “powa” or ‘transference of consciousness’ on behalf of those who have recently died in conjunction with reliance upon Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. By engaging in this practice we can gain the ability to help others at the time they need it most and create our own pathway to the Pure Land through the power of such compassionate activity.
The day will include teachings and an opportunity to engage in the practice of a Powa Ceremony as a group at the end. It is customary to bring a white offering such as candles, flowers, incense or food, those who wish are welcome to do so.
