The Ottawa Sangha of esteemed Buddhist Master Anyen Rinpoche meets every Wednesday at 7:30 at Santosha to practice meditation and offer support to each other as we explore how the Buddhist practices of mindfulness and loving kindness can bring happiness to ourselves and others.
We start with a group practice of silent meditation and then practice the Avaloketesvara Sadhana - a meditation practice with mantra designed to awaken Compassion for the benefit of ourselves and all sentient beings.
All are welcome and no previous experience with meditation or Buddhism is required.
If you are interested in learning more about Meditation and Buddhism please come a few minutes early to introduce yourself and one of the Sangha members can help you find your place and explain the Sadhana and discussion topics for the evening.
Our discussions this year are focused on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva as translated by Dilgo Khyentse
The schedule is:
7:15pm - Arrive
7:30 - 8:00pm - Wind energy and Silent sitting meditation
8:00 - 8:30pm - Avalokitesvara Sadhana
