Join us for this detailed teaching on the ‘Heartdrop of the Loving Mother’ practice with Tempa Dukte Lama. Tempa Lama will give detailed instructions on how to meditate on the Great Loving Mother according to the practice of the Heartdrop of the Loving Mother. He will explain the liturgy and visualization, offer the transmission and guide us in meditating on the qualities of the Loving Mother.

The Great Loving Mother of Wisdom or Sherab Jamma is the female Buddha of love and wisdom and the highest deity of the 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.

The Great Loving Mother is traditionally invoked as the protector from the Eight Fears afflicting us humans. The eight fears are the fear of enemies, sorcery or curses, infertility, nagas, extreme views, faults or insecurities, death, and negative planetary forces. The Loving Mother protects us from the grasp of these eight dreads.
