Meditation

The Tibetan word for meditation is gom which means “familiarisation.” In meditation we work with habitual patterns of thought and behaviour to become more familiar with the positive and less familiar with the negative, more familiar with what brings happiness and satisfaction in life and less familiar with what brings suffering and unhappiness. Meditation unfolds our innate qualities of compassion, self-acceptance and inner peace.

Pujas

Pujas are chanted prayer ceremonies which show respect and devotion. You can join in the prayers and chanting from the sadhana (spiritual text) or simply sit, listen and enjoy the blessings.  Please feel free to bring offerings (for example incense, fruit, flowers, biscuits) for the shrine – especially for the Tsog pujas.
