Saturday Workshop with Resident Teacher Gen Jindak
June 1:  10:00 am – 12:45 pm

This morning workshop will include practical instruction and guided meditations on the very blessed and inspiring practice of Guru Yoga, or relying upon a Spiritual Guide.

All schools of Buddhism agree that the practice of relying upon a spiritual guide, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments. We can understand this from our ordinary experiences. For example if we want to acquire special skills, become proficient at a particular sport, or learn to play a musical instrument well, we naturally seek a qualified teacher to instruct us. By following a teacher’s example and sincerely applying his or her instructions, eventually we accomplish our aim and become just like our teacher. If reliance upon a qualified teacher is necessary for mundane achievements, how much more necessary is it for spiritual attainments such as liberation and enlightenment?

By practicing the instructions given in the course, we will be able to quickly and easily purify negativity, accumulate a great deal of positive energy in our mind, and activate our potential for spiritual growth and realization.

Just as in our ordinary education we need to rely upon the help of well-qualified teachers, so in the spiritual training that leads to full enlightenment we need to rely upon a well-qualified Spiritual Guide.
