Special offering at ESH - Save the date

  Venerable Pannavati will offer a special meditation 

  and sadhana before the regular dharma gathering on

  June 28. Sadhanas are chanted or sung prayer and 

  blessing ceremonies to arouse gratitude, appreciation,

  compassion, power, personal transformation and

  liberation in our own mindstreams. This ceremony

  will allow for a 15 minute explanation and is half an

  hour in length. You may participate or simply

  observe. If you want to awaken or boost your spiritual

  connection to universal understanding and power,

  please attend.

  Sweet Gate of Nectar, a sadhana of compassion
                   Sunday, June 28, 2015

  (in lieu of usual 10:15 pre-dharma talk sitting)

Offering symbolic sustenance, mental relief, encouragement and respite to hungry ghosts and hurting hearts. Come with an open mind and expect to connect with your own Buddha nature--find your capacity to hear the cries of the world and respond with compassion and power!
