How to deepen our Faith in Buddha

Saturday 10 November | 10.30am-5pm

About the Course

Join us for this inspirational once in a lifetime event as we mark the public opening of Kadampa Meditation Centre Edinburgh’s first commercial space in the vibrant heart of Scotland’s capital city.

For Buddhists, faith in Buddha Shakyamuni is our spiritual life. For Modern Kadampas we can learn to continually improve faith in Buddha through the special method of engaging in ‘The Liberating Prayer‘.

Gen-la Dekyong will explain how to use this prayer to make a strong connection with Buddha and have our life transformed by his protection and blessings.
