Join us for a day of giving thanks to all living beings, by chanting prayers for their happiness and freedom. You are welcome to come to any or all of the four sessions of chanted prayers “Liberation from Sorrow” which we make to the enlightened Buddha Green Tara.

2,500 years after the passing of Buddha, his message continues to resonate. Through adopting special ways of thinking we can improve our qualities of inner peace, love and patience, and cause our problems and unhappiness to cease. Attaining a truly peaceful mind and kind heart is the best gift we can give to ourself, our families, and the world.

New Year’s Eve is a popular time to celebrate our future - saying goodbye to the previous year and looking forward in hope to a better year ahead. 

How can we find success in 2024? Is there any way we can guarantee that we will have a better year in 2024?

Buddha's teachings provide the ultimate guide to finding happiness and success in our future - through spiritual practice.  What is spiritual practice? What does it mean to live a spiritual life?

This empowerment is a sublime guided meditation through which we develop a relationship with Wisdom Buddha Manjushri and form an extraordinary vision of spiritual transformation for ourselves and our world. Through this guided meditation and blessings, we become empowered to nurture our own innate potential for wisdom, which dispels the darkness of our inner confusion and gives us the pure happiness of mental peace.

“An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.”  — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

Pure happiness is the happiness that comes from wisdom in our heart, not from worldly enjoyments. Heart Jewel helps us receive strong wisdom blessings daily. In this workshop we will learn:
