Instructions in the Ngondro: Refuge and Prostrations, with Lama Zangmo
WhoTeacher: Lama Gelongma Zangmo
The Ngondro is a practice text by the 9th Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje, consisting of the four ordinary foundations and the four special foundations.
The function of the Ngondro is to help us appreciate the importance of Dharma practice, and is a method to practice purification and accummulation of merit.
Lama Zangmo will give instructions on how to start the first of the special foundations, the refuge and prostrations.
This course is only suitable for those who have taken REFUGE and are already familiar with the four ordinary foundations, and who wish to start the practice of performing one hundred thousand prostrations.
For any questions, please contact the office or make an appointment to speak to Lama Zangmo.
You will need to bring a Ngondro text to the teachings. (available from the shop).
If there is enough interest we will add a monthly Ngondro practice Day to the programme.
Making a Donation
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
