Practical Instruction on Mipham's Shakyamuni Sadhana

Tibetan Center
October 3, 10, 17, & 24, 2012 6:30-8:00 pm

Mipham, the great Rimay (non-sectarian) Buddhist master and scholar, more than 100 years ago composed a meditation practice based on Buddha Shakyamuni. The practice incorporates all of the core elements of the three vehicles of Buddhism and includes ample notes and instructions from Mipham himself. It has become perhaps the most universally known and practiced sadhanas (methods of accomplishment) in all schools and lineages of Tibetan Buddhism.

For four consecutive Wednesday evenings in October, Tulku Sherdor of Blazing Wisdom Institute in Andes, New York, a frequent guest teacher at The Tibetan Center, will offer a complete course of practical instruction on this Shakyamuni sadhana. It is particularly suited to those seeking, or seeking to deepen a basic understanding of the core teachings of Buddhadharma, and it is an accessible and effective meditation practice for incorporating into our lives.


Registrants should commit to attend the entire series, for which a donation of $75 (for all four sessions) is recommended. Please pre-register by calling the Tibetan Center at (845) 383-1774, or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by September 30th.
