Exploring the Stupa Practice with Mahamati

Exploring the Stupa Practice with Mahamati

Sunday 27 August 2023 10am – 4pm

On this Sunday workshop we will explore the Stupa Visualisation Practice, taught by Sangharakshita for Mitras and Order members from the early days of Triratna. In Sangharakshita’s words: “The stupa visualisation practice is intended to release, stimulate, and purify psychospiritual energy”. 

The colours and shapes of the visualised stupa represent the elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space, and the visualisation also gives a door-way into insight into the insubstantial, empty nature of experience. The practice is both simple and powerful. Come on this weekend workshop to find out more!

Mahamati has had a rich and diverse dharma life. Ordained in 1977 at 22 years old by Sangharakshita which to this day remains the defining moment of his life. From 1982 he was Director of Karuna Trust which led to his moving to India in 1992 where he was based for several years. Returning to England at end of the millennium he lived at Madhyamaloka community with Sangharakshita . During this time he became an International Order Convenor as well as secretary to Bhante. He has a deep connection with the Dharma and communicates in a way that inspires, uplifts and rejuvenates.
