Join us for meditation classes in Collingwood.

Drawing on teachings from the 2023 NKT International Spring Festival, Gen Suma will help us deepen our understanding of Buddha, his extraordinary nature and qualities and his sweeping intention to permanently protect living beings everywhere from their suffering and sorrow.

In each session, Gen Suma will unpack some of the beautiful lines, words and verses in the short but powerful Liberating Prayer that is chanted at the start of every class in hundreds of Kadampa Buddhist Centres worldwide. 

Tickets are $12 for one class or $40 for four classes. You may pay in advance below or with a card or cash at the door.

The Liberating Prayer is not an ordinary prayer – It is like a text and has profound meaning.

All Lamrim teachings – renunciation, bodhichitta, and correct view of emptiness are included in this prayer.
