Mandala of the Five Buddhas...Online

Mandala of the Five Buddhas...Online

We have moved this course to an online space, using Zoom.  

Please join us as we enter a realm of colour, magic and significance: the mandala of the five archetypal Buddhas: Akshobya, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, Amoghasiddhi and Vairochana. The mandala was developed in medieval India and still relevant today.   

Each Buddha embodies an aspect of the enlightened mind : The mirror-like wisdom that reflects everything just as it is, the wisdom of abundance, of uniqueness and of equality. Their qualities are expressed by their hand gestures, their jewel-like and diaphanous colour, their associated animal, symbols, elements and mantras.  

Once in the mandala you’re in a protected space, where the qualities of the Buddhas (or Jinas which means conquerors) are absorbed by you: unperturbed, equanimous, discriminating, fearless and wise. 

Each week we will explore a different Jina Buddha, and we’ll meditate on each one through discussion, symbol, image and sound.  

This is a 6 week course open to any level of experience. Booking required. Donations welcome.
