How Buddhist prayer works

Sunday 16th February 2pm – 5.30pm St Lukes , Mahon
Monthly Meditation session
“How Buddhist prayer works”
Following on from our Guru Tai Situ pa Rinpoche’s New Year message that emphasised the need for prayer in 2020, how to pray and how prayer works within a Vajryana Buddhist tradition is worth exploring,
Some of the questions that may arise are who do we pray to? What’s the best way to pray? How does prayer work? How does it differ to traditional Christian prayer? What does meditation have to do with prayer?
The afternoon will be meditation based including a guided loving kindness practice. There will be an expaination of the topic by Ani Chodron and an opportunity for discussion on the topic of prayer.
“According to the Western calendar,
the year 2020 is twenty-twenty,
which is a very special number.
Therefore, at this time
there will naturally be many different occurrences in this world.
There will be many positive occurrences
and also many negative ones.
Because of that, we need to pray for the positive ones to arise
and for the negative ones not to take place.”
from the New Year Blessing by Guru Vajradhara Chamgon Tai Situ Pa
