Heart Drop of the Loving Mother – Weekend Teaching with Tempa Dukte Lama

Khungdzong Wodsel Ling, 1977 N. New Hampshire Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90027-181867
Fri. December 2, 7:30-9:00pm, Sat. Dec. 3 and Sun. Dec. 4, 10am -5pm

Tempa Dukte Lama will offer a special weekend transmission and teaching on the ancient Tibetan Bon meditation practice ‘Heartdrop of the Loving Mother’. Sherab Jamma is the female Buddha of love and wisdom, or ‘Loving Mother of Wisdom’. She is one of the four ‘Transcendental Lords’ of Bon and the highest deity of the Tibetan Bon tradition.

The Heart Drop of the Loving Mother Practice is the essence of the teachings of Sherab Jamma. This practice connects us with our primordial capacity to love and care unconditionally for one another and for ourselves. If we take some time for this practice every day, it will deeply transform us. The true quality of the Loving Mother is within us from beginningless time, and it will be there forever. Practicing the Loving Mother means that we recognize this quality within ourselves. Based on this recognition we nurture it and finally use it as a skillful means of refuge and protection for the self and others. Tempa Lama will offer the transmission of this practice and guide us in meditating on the qualities of the Loving Mother.

The Retreat is both for people who are new to the Loving Mother practice and for those who have learned a Sherab Jamma practice previously. Tempa Lama’s new book, Heart Drop of the Loving Mother, is devoted to the special teachings offered in this retreat and will be available for purchase.

Tempa Dukte Lama is an ordained Tibetan Bon lama. He studied in Menri Monastery, India, from the age of six under the close, personal guidance of His Holiness 33rd Menri Trizin, the spiritual head of Bon. Tempa Lama is the founder and spiritual director of Olmo Ling Bon Center in Pittsburgh, PA. He is an artist and poet and author of four books. Tempa Lama has taught in the US, Mexico, Canada and Europe since 2000.
