On Saturday 7 April Ven Kunsang Choephel will give a free teaching on the topic of Meditation on Avalokiteshvara at the International Buddhist Academy at Tinchuli near Boudha.
The Avalokiteshvara Mantra is Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum. The Mantra has six syllables. Those six syllables represent the six Buddha families. Through practising the Mantra one is purified of the six negative emotions. Those six negative emotions are the cause of being reborn in the six realms. If one can abandon the six negative emotions, there is no more Samsara.
IBA is at Tinchuli, about 20 mins walk from Boudha Stupa. From Boudha walk up Phulbari Road to Tinchuli Chowk. Turn right onto the main road (towards Arubari) and then take the third lane on the left which has a sign to IBA on the corner. Turn left at the T junction and follow the road to the IBA gate.
The teaching is in English. All are welcome. Arrive at 9am for tea.
