Wednesday Deity Practice: Manjushri
led by Venerable Khenpo Choephel
November 15, 2017, 7-8:30pm
Our weekly Deity Practice is on Manjushri tonight.
Manjushri is the embodiment of Perfect Wisdom.
The iconography of Manjushri is often depicted as wielding a flaming sword in the right hand which cuts through ignorance and delusion, and holding in the left hand a lotus flower containing the Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra, the Sutra of the Perfection of (Transcendent) Wisdom.
How do we practice perfecting actions of our body, speech, and mind as guided by wisdom? Our practice starts with opening prayers on bodhicitta, meditation on the nature of our mind, visualization, chanting of mantra, and finally, the dedication of merits to benefit all beings.
ALL ARE WELCOME
