Tuesday night is open night at the Wellington Buddhist Centre – all welcome.

This evening is the fourth in a series we are doing on Great Buddhist Teachers of the Past; we’ll have a talk by Saradarshini followed by a festive Puja with musical accompaniment.

*Padmasambhava, Precious Guru, Urgyen Rimpoche, Lotus born – these are some of the many names by which he is known.

Padmasambhava is best known for establishing Buddhism in Tibet, an historical figure who has certainly been the subject of much myth and legend. The Life and Liberation of Padmasambhava is two volumes and contains many fabulous stories and it is often impossible to decide on what level the events described took place, actual, legend?

From my perspective, some are clearly legend it has to be said! In the course of the story Padmasambhava takes on many different forms – at each stage he acquires a new name. This is common in the Buddhist tradition. If you go forth as a monk or get ordained into the Triratna Community you are given a new name.

This evening’s talk will include a number of short accounts from the life of Padmasambhava and will be followed by a special puja. This evening is more about engaging emotions and energy rather than the intellect – so just see what happens it doesn’t matter if you don’t understand everything – the main thing is you enjoy the evening and you come away knowing a little more about Padmasambhava.

Each evening is stand alone, even when it is part of a series. The evening begins with a short talk on an aspect of Buddhism with opportunity for questions and discussion; then a tea break; followed by a period of meditation: on festival days the meditation is short to allow for a puja (devotional ritual).
