Black Manjushri and An Overview of the Mind

30 October 2015 - 4:47pm Comments Off

Kechara Forest Retreat was originally envisioned by H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche to be a place where home-grown spiritual teachers, meditators and practitioners are created. To initiate this tradition, a series of talks by Kechara’s Pastors and Rinpoche’s senior students who are steeped in Dharma knowledge and practice will be scheduled regularly.

The first of such talks will be Black Manjushri and An Overview of the Mind by Pastor David Lai.

Black Manjushri is a wrathful emanation of Lord Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom. Manjushri is amongst one of the main practices of Rinpoche and this particular form of Manjushri is recommended to all because of its many benefits. Black Manjushri not only bestows wisdom but is also a healing practice as well as one that can alleviate obstacles, bad dreams, spirits, black magic and other negative interferences.

Apart from explanations on how to engage in the practice and yogic exercises of Black Manjushri, Pastor David will also be giving an explanation of how the mind operates and how practices like Black Manjushri can benefit us.

Please RSVP your attendance via [email protected] or +603 7803 3908 by 5 November 2015. Seating is limited and availability is on a first come first serve basis.

* Suggested minimum contribution: RM20
