About this event

“Just seeing an image of a Buddha places a potentiality on the mind that is a definite cause of enlightenment, and which nothing can destroy.” - Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Discover the beauty, meaning, and ritual involved in creating and maintaining a Kadampa shrine. Beyond simply appreciating the artistic aspects, understanding the symbolism and significance of the images and objects that make up a shrine reveals how to make progress on the Buddhist path to enlightenment.

For practitioners, it's helpful to have our own place for contemplation and spiritual focus, which improves our meditation practice. Learn the essentials for setting up a personal shrine at home.

Led by Gen Kelsang Tsoglam, Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher.
