‘The Liberating Prayer is not an ordinary prayer – It is like a text and has profound meaning. All Lamrim teachings – renunciation, bodhichitta, and correct view of emptiness are included in this prayer. I can say very few people understand the Liberating Prayer. It definitely needs verbal commentary by a Teacher. If we understand and contemplate its meaning – it is the best method to develop faith in Buddha and his teachings, which is our spiritual life and the root of all Dharma realizations.’
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

The Liberating Prayer is recited before every teaching, meditation and puja in our tradition and for Kadampas, this practice is extremely precious. It was composed by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for modern people to make a close connection with Buddha Shakyamuni.

In this weekend retreat we will be guided to meditate on the meaning of each verse and gradually come to know from our own experience the deep inner peace and protection that comes from our faith and receiving Buddha’s blessings.

Suitable for all levels of practitioner. Everyone welcome
