Heart Jewel

Mondays at 4pm

The core daily prayer practice of Kadampa Buddhists world-wide is called Heart Jewel. By reciting this prayer we can create the perfect conditions for successful meditation practice by purifying negativity, accumulating merit (good karma/positive mental energy), and receiving powerful blessings. Each session also includes silent time for contemplation and meditation.

That's all you really need to know. Just come and enjoy. It is very peaceful and helps with daily life in so many ways.

But if you want to know more... Technically, it is a Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa combined with the condensed sadhana of his Dharma Protector with short meditations on Lamrim and Mahamudra.

This puja includes two practices that come from the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri. The first is a special Guru yoga in which we visualize our Spiritual Guide as Je Tsongkhapa, who himself is a manifestation of Manjushri.

By relying upon this practice, we can purify negativity, accumulate merit, and receive blessings. In this way, we will naturally accomplish all the realizations of the stages of the path of Sutra and Tantra, and in particular we will attain a very special Dharma wisdom.

The second practice is a method for relying upon the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Through this, we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favourable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our Dharma realizations.

If we rely upon the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden sincerely, our faith in Je Tsongkhapa will naturally increase and we will easily gain experience of the pure Buddhadharma transmitted directly to Je Tsongkhapa by the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

These two practices are the very essence of the New Kadampa Tradition of Mahayana Buddhism. If we practice them regularly and sincerely, we will reap a rich harvest of pure Dharma realizations, and eventually come to experience the supreme joy of full enlightenment.

An extensive explanation of this sadhana can be found in the book Heart Jewel, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

Heruka Buddhist Center in Greeley

710 Eleventh Ave, Room L30
Greeley, CO 80631

Tips on getting here

This is the old Greeley high school. It is next to the UCCC, Rec. Center, and Lincoln Park Library.

You may park in front or back. Or, there is a bus stop about 20' from the door on Eleventh Avenue at Eight St.

The easiest way to find room L30 is to enter the lower-level west doors on Eleventh Avenue, facing the Santiago's restaurant. If, instead, you go in the main doors, you will need to take the stairs or the elevator down.

NOTE: Even if you take the elevator, there are still 6 steps to go down.
