Shrine, Offerings & Rituals: Explained
Friday 21 April | 7 -8.30pm | with Gen Kelsang Gomchen
“The purpose of making offerings is not because the Buddhas need anything from us, but because of the effect it has on our own mind”
– Geshe Kelsang Gyasto
This practical evening workshop has been requested by several students of KMC London. Gen Gomchen will explain:
- The significance of a Buddhist shrine
- How to create a perfect space for meditation
- Why do we make offerings?
- A simple ritual for making water offerings
Through understanding and applying these practices we can greatly supplement our practice of meditation, draw close to enlightened beings and receive daily inspiration.
Everyone is welcome from practising Buddhists, to those simply curious to find out more. A not-to-be-missed evening!
Fee: £10, free for KMC London members. Please join us for snacks afterwards.
