Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being who is a manifestation of all Buddhas’ compassion. By relying sincerely upon Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, and reciting his mantra with strong faith, temporarily we will improve our realizations of all the stages of the path, especially our realization of great compassion, and ultimately we will attain supreme Buddhahood in Avalokiteshvara’s Pure Land. This prayer focusses on the Four-armed aspect of Avalokiteshvara.

No booking required. Prayer will be chanted in English. There will be a 10 minute silence for meditation. Please refer to “Essential Insights into the Avalokiteshvara Sadhana: Prayers and Requests to the Buddha of Compassion” chapter of The Mirror of Dharma with Additions for the explanation of the practice and the meditation.

Usually held once a month on a Friday from 8:00pm – 9:00pm. Check calendar for exact date and time.
