Wishfulfilling Jewel is a special practice for developing compassion, wisdom, and spiritual strength by relying on the Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa, and for overcoming obstacles and difficulties in our meditation (Dharma) practice by relying on the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

In this transference of consciousness, through concentration, compassion, faith, prayers, and mantras the participants assist in directing the consciousness of the recently deceased directly to the Pure Land, where they will be free from suffering and experience true happiness forevermore.

This is a special practice of relying upon our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha and making praises and requests, but it also contains beautiful essential instructions on all the stages of the path to enlightenment and training the mind, as well as both the generation stage and completion stage of Highest Yoga Tantra.

We also make specific prayers for our friends, family members, Sangha, and others who are suffering or have died. This practice includes a tsog (food) offering which you can virtually engage in through your imagination.

Heart Jewel is the essential daily practice of Kadampa Buddhism. This practice helps us to overcome obstacles and difficulties on the spiritual path by developing our compassion, wisdom, and spiritual strength. Heart Jewel helps us nurture and increase our positive mind and pure Dharma realizations, taking us to our highest potential, full enlightenment.

In this practice we make prayers to Wisdom Buddha Je Tsongkhapa and the enlightened Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. There are silent pauses for engaging in Lamrim and Mahamudra meditations.

In the Foundation Program, we engage in the systematic study of key Buddhist texts in order to gain a deep and lasting understanding and experience of the spiritual path, as well as an authentic confidence as a meditator and practitioner. These study classes also help us to become part of a community of practitioners who are sincerely putting the teachings into practice.

With weekly reading assignments from the text, as well as commentary, discussions and meditations on the week’s readings, these study classes create the conditions for us to develop deep inner experience of the teachings.

For those with Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments only.
