Practicing with a Mantra: a Dharma Study Session

with Richard Skoonberg

Saturday, February 24th, 2024, from  9:00 to noon

In-Person and on Zoom 

A mantra is a syllable, a word, or a group of words with spiritual power. Practicing with a mantra is one of the oldest practices in Buddhism, dating back to sutras from the first century.  Buddhist mantras are, at their core, a skillful means to overcome distractions of the monkey mind and improve concentration. Different forms of mantra practice exist in all schools of Buddhism. In this workshop, we will explore different historic Buddhist mantras, why they are effective, and their deep spiritual implications for our practice.
