Online Easter Practice Day- Chenrezi
Online Easter Practice Day- Chenrezi, the Great Bodhisattva of Compassion
Sunday 4th April 2021 10- 4pm with Choden
During this retreat day Choden will introduce the compassion practice of Chenrezi. He will explain some of the key principles underlying the practice, such as seeing the world as being non-solid and dreamlike whilst also opening to the suffering of living beings with love and compassion. He will explain how the process of visualisation is really like initiating a love affair with life in which we let the pain of life touch our hearts with the confidence that the core of our being – out intrinsic Buddha Nature – will never be damaged, but instead revitalised and charged with healing power.
Choden will give some practical instructions on how to do the practice, whilst also explaining the motivation for doing it. He will try to keep it simple and not too intellectual. A big focus of the day will be chanting the mantra of Chenrezig and letting it touch our hearts so they open and become filled with the grace and power of compassion that then becomes a source of healing for ourselves and a something we can offer to countless other beings who are suffering in this difficult time.
