May UK & Ireland Area Order Weekend Theme Announced

Riding a Tiger – Padmasambhava in the Life of the Order

Friday 4th to Sunday 6th May

The May Area Order weekend will be devoted to the Rainbow-Bodied One, the Greatly Precious Guru Padmasambhava.

Recently, Bhante reminded us how important Padmasambhava has been for him. He also reminded us that Padmasambhava continues to be very much alive in his own life, as well as in the life of the Order.

During the weekend we will be invoking Padmasambhava and exploring what he means for us.

Alokavira writes:

'For those of us not travelling to India for the convention Yashodeva and I of the Midlands Region are pleased to lead this weekend on the practice of the Metta Bhavana. The theme of metta and its importance, its ethical dimension and its possibility for very real and significant transformation will tie in with the re-launch of the Order Metta that will happen on the Order convention at Bodh Gaya.

There will be a good amount of shrine room practice supported by practice-based talks, study, puja and time to meet with friends.'
