CALM-ABIDING MEDITATION
Time: 6:00-7:30 pm
more information

Calm-abiding meditation (also called shamatha or mindfulness meditation) is a set of methods to calm the mind and enable the primordial ground of being to begin to manifest. The basic practice involves gently and repeatedly focusing the mind on either an object, such as a symbol, or one's own breath, or simply resting the mind in awareness. Calm-abiding meditation is helpful in reducing stress and cultivating a less anxious approach to one's daily life.

White Tara is always depicted as a peaceful deity. Her special function is to promote long life, both for the practitioner and for others. Ultimately, she is the very nature of the dharmakaya, and her practice is a means for attaining liberation. (more info...)

Mother Achi was the grandmother of Lord Jigton Sumgon, founder of the Drikung Lineage. To this day she remains a great dharma protector of the Buddha's teachings. Although Achi has a particular commitment to protect the Drikung Kagyu, she is recognized and practiced by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. (more info...)
