Teachings on Rain of Clarity and the Initiation of Hayagriva

10.30 - 13.00: Teachings on Rain of Clarity

Rain of Clarity - the stages of the path in the Sakya tradition is a guide to the entire Buddhist path based on the key Buddhist teachings of the Sakya school.  It is described by His Holiness Sakya Trizin as “a gateway into Buddhist spiritual thought”.

“Through this Buddhist teaching the student receives a full blueprint of entering the path, keeping the vows, maintaining motivation, leading a better and more virtuous life, and finally a way to liberation.”

In this session, Lama Jampa will be teaching from the final chapter of the book which is on the Vajrayana.

14.30 - 17.00: Initiation of Hayagriva

Hayagriva is an important yidam found in all four classes of Tantras. He is associated with the Lotus family of Amitabha and bestows protection from both mental and physical disturbances. This particular permission initiation will be drawn from the Collection of the One Hundred Sadhanas of Bari Lotsava.

This initiation is open to all those who have taken refuge. Lama Jampa Thaye may bestow refuge by arrangement – please contact bristol@dechen.org for details.

Fee: £25 (teaching and initiation);  £15 (teaching only ending 1.00pm). Concessions by request.
