Preparing the Mind to receive the Dharma: More Verses from the Tibetan Book of the Dead

Garavachitta leads the second of two Monday evenings – no need to have come to the first. He says:

To hear the Dharma directly is to encounter the truth of Reality, but we need to take the time to prepare ourselves through mindfulness and metta. This evening we will take the time to open the ground – and let go our usual preoccupations – so we can really hear the direct transmission of verses from the Tibetan Book of the Dead, which will be read towards the end of the practice.

About Going Deeper

These sessions are an opportunity to come together and practise, with a focus on deepening meditation. Each week, as a community, we explore different aspects and approaches to our meditation practice. The evenings vary, but you can expect periods of meditation with short talks and discussion - sometimes in small groups - and a ten-minute break around the mid-point. Going Deeper will be staying online for the foreseeable future.

Who is the Evening for?

It’s suitable for anyone familiar with the two meditation practices we teach here – Mindfulness of Breathing and Metta Bhavana – and with at least six months regular meditation practice.

Supporting the Centre

We want to offer as much as we can freely online for as long as we can. These are very difficult times for us though, and being mostly closed for so long means we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
