In this practice, Paula Chichester will guide us through a sadhana written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama called “The Inseparability of the Spiritual Master and Avalokiteshvara”. The teachings will include explanations and time for questions.
The weekend retreat on mahamudra with Paula Chichester the two following days will be starting with an abbreviated version of this guru yoga, as recommended when engaging in mahamudra.
Avalokiteshvara, also known as Chenrezig, embodies the great infinite compassion aspect of all the Buddhas. The great compassion comes from not only wishing all sentient beings to be free from suffering but actually put it to action to alleviate sufferings. The seed of compassion will grow if you plant it in fertile soil, a consciousness moistened with love. When you have watered your mind with love, you can begin to meditate upon compassion. Compassion, here, is simply the wish that all sentient beings be free of suffering.
An Open Heart, The Dalai Lama
