Calm Abiding Meditation & Teachings on Goddess Parnashavari


Calm Abiding Meditation is the most fundamental of all Buddhist meditation practices. Using the tool of mindfulness one learns to bring a sense of stability and clarity to the mind. An increase in emotional stability and decrease in mental confusion will help negotiate more helpful responses when confronted with life problems. Meditation is ultimately about experiencing the opening up of our heart and mind to compassion and to wisdom. In this years retreat lama Choedak Rinpoche will also be giving teaching on Healing Goddess Parnashavari.

Meditation should be learnt properly from a good teacher and practice far away from noise and distraction until one has developed a solid discipline to do it in everyday life.

The amazing benefits of meditation can help to understand how to live sanely and wisely without being adversely affected by the fast pace of the modern world. Being able to stay calm, focused and learn to use simple but profound techniques of meditation can change one’s life.




In this retreat, Lama Choedak Rinpoche will bestow the sacred transmission of the Healing Goddess Parnashavari and Lead its meditation and give teachings as part of the weekend retreat. This practice is ideal for all who are under medication and all health care practitioners can augment and benefit their practices.

Meditation is an amazing practice of how to be present, to know, to see and change at will with the application of an immense power to love and live with kindness and wisdom. This power of good remains  dormant in all human beings. Buddhist meditation shows how to unfold this from within. This technique goes back some 2600 years of ancient wisdom and enlightenment.  Come and learn to meditate with a Tibetan Lama for a day. It will take form of listening to few short discourses, sitting, walking, standing and doing things with your hand.
