About the Event

Imagination is a powerful tool for visualizing desired outcomes. Imagining an assembly of Buddhas in what is called the Field of Merit gives us an opportunity to develop a unique relationship with these holy beings, bringing about extraordinary personal transformation. This practice is the basis of many Buddhist rituals for purifying negativity and accumulating positive energy, or merit. Come learn how to have meaningful and transformative experiences simply by developing the power of imagination.

This course, led by Gen Khedrub from Seattle and Gen Wangpo from Olympia, provides an opportunity to hear different perspectives on Buddha's teachings and enjoy coming together with others in the Pacific Northwest community of Kadampas. Everyone is welcome to stay for the two-hour Offering to the Spiritual Guide practice that starts at 3:30pm.
