The Sherab Chamma Ling Tibetan Bon Buddhist Centre offers an introductory course this Sunday.
Ancient Bon texts teach a meditation practice using five seed syllables (A, OM, HUNG, RAM, DZA) which represent the body, speech, mind, virtuous qualities & actions of enlightenment.
The seed syllables are chanted while bringing the attention to the five corresponding chakras or energy centers in the body. Through the combination of focus on a particular location, the vibration of the sound and the awareness of light, we develop an increasingly clear and open presence, glowing with positive qualities.
The qualities themselves; love, compassion, joy, & equanimity, become the supports or entrances to a deeper connection with self, a deeper wisdom and the very space from which all of existence arises.
In this introductory course, Geshe YongDong will share his knowledge of the healing power of the five sacred syllables, and guide participants in how to use them.
The course will be taught at 407A Fifth St. this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pre-registration is necessary.
