Just as a car cannot move without wheels, so it is difficult to make any progress in one’s Dharma practice and studies without engaging in the practices contained in the Seven-Branched Worship. The practices of prostrations, offerings, confession, rejoicing, requesting to remain and teach the Dharma, and dedication of merit should be understood to be the very foundation upon which one’s entire Dharma practice is built. They are also the core practices of the great masters themselves.
This course will offer a general introduction to the seven-branched worship with a special focus on the importance of prostrations, purification of negativities with the four opponent powers, and the practice of offerings together with their relevant meditations and visualisations. Participants will have the opportunity to perform these practices and meditations during the classes.
This course is suitable for anyone with faith in the Buddha’s teachings and who would like to put them into practice within the framework of a daily commitment.
