Mandala & Buddhist Meditation Festival with Tibetan Monks | 3 days
Time & Location
About the Event
ONLINE event. You can also come here for some events and to see the mandala, but only by mentionning it before to see if space is available (if social distanciation is still in effect only).
Tibetan Buddhist Monks from Gajang Monastery will be at Paramita Centre for 3 days for a Buddhist Meditation Festival. They will build over the 3 days a coloured Sand Mandala (Compassion Mandala), and we will host different Meditation sessions and Buddhist philosophy Teachings & Conferences. Monks will also perform Traditional throat signing and there will be a Tibetan Bazar on place. All the proceeds from this Festival will go to support the 2000 refugee monks of Gajang Monastery in India.

For those in Toronto, you are welcome to join but would need to confirm your presence before by calling us if the physical distanciation rules still apply. All others are welcome to participate online. During the 3 days, we will do many short livestreams on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/paramitacentretibetantbuddhistmeditation), which everybody will be able to see without registration. To contribute for the fundraiser, you will need to register to be able to participate to the different worskhops & conferences.
The livestreams will be during different parts of the day between 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. You can also visit us mainly during these hours to see the mandala in real or participate physically to the workshops (be sure to call before to be sure we can guarantee you a spot (437) 888-8864).
We will have also here a Tibetan Bazar with Meditation articles which you can also buy to support the Monastery.
COMPASSION BUDDHA EMPOWERMENT with Lama Samten
Buddhist Teachings explain that the root of all kinds of happiness is Compassion. If we want happiness for oneself, we should practice compassion; if we want happiness for others we should practice compassion. If we want to condense all Buddha's teachings in one word, it is Compassion.
Throuhg the meditative practices and mantra recitation associated with Compassion Buddha, you will learn the techniques to help you develop compassion according to Mantra category of teachings.
Lama Samten is a great master in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. He studied and trained as a monk in Gaden Jangtse, one of the greatest Buddhist Monastic University, for almost 20 years. Since he completed his studies, he shares his knowledge and wisdom with everybody interested in Canada and Europe since 20 years.
It is a great and rare opportunity to receive these teachings on the way to practice a so powerful and awesome meditative technique. Lama Samten will teach us the way that this practice can empower us to our happiness, freedom and well-being until Enlightenment.
All the Conferences will be given by Lama Samten and/or Tenzin Gawa, Buddhist monks & teachers of Paramita Centre.
