This practice is the heart essence of Kadampa Buddhism. In the first part we view our Spiritual Guide as the Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa and make prayers and requests to purify negativity and obstructions, accumulate merit (good fortune or karma), and receive blessings or inspiration. This prepares our mind for meditation on the stages of the path to enlightenment and a Mahamudra meditation.

In the second part we make prayers to our Dharma Protector, Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden. Through this we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favorable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our pure Dharma realizations. (45 minutes)

*During normal times, we hold Heart Jewel on Sundays at 9:30 am, Mondays at 1:30 pm, and Tuesdays at 5:45 pm (check calendar to confirm date and time)
