Circumambulation

Connect With The Path

Circumambulation is a practice of devotion, mindfulness, and the accumulation of merit. Geshe Gelek has advised that we circumambulate not just the stupa, but also the entire gompa and thereby all the holy objects inside.

During the pandemic, Geshe Sangpo began leading this practice each month. Grounds volunteers created a temporary path around the building as a trial or test for the opportunity.

The opportunity to circumambulate the gompa, stupa, and garden Buddha attracts many practitioners who are able to practice with their teacher safely outside. Many in our community come to circumambulate on their own (and with their pets, too:)

To provide a variety of opportunities for practice and to accommodate members of all ages, from those with disabilities to young children, we will build a large brick path around the back of the building and around the courtyard that connects to the front sidewalk and stupa path.

“The more people involved, the more energy gathers. The more energy gathers, the more holy it becomes.”

~ Geshe Gelek Chodha

Share in the Merit

Due to the generosity of our donors, Kadampa Center has the funds to complete this very special project. We are offering the opportunity for everyone in our community to create merit by practicing the perfection of generosity. Whether $1 or $1,000 – any level of giving to this incredible dharma project will create lasting merit! Geshe Gelek has often said that those who support the creation of a holy object or opportunity to practice, will share in the merit every time someone uses it in practice. With your participation, you join your steps with hundreds of others for years and years to come!

Communicating an intention for your generosity supports the development of your heart and mind, and provides practical feedback about what inspires the Kadampa Center community. Contributions are received with the understanding that Kadampa Center has discretion over the use of all donated funds.

If you wish to share an intention, have any questions, or need more information, please let us know ~ there are many ways to connect with Kadampa Center!
