Teacher : Irene Cleghorn
Price 1 : £8
The Supplication to the Shambhala Lineage is usually chanted at the start of each practice session but why is it done, what is lineage and who are the people mentioned in the chant?

If you have ever attended a practice session at the Bristol Shambhala Meditation Group it is likely that it began by reciting the Supplication to the Shambhala Lineage and you may have wondered why it is chanted and who or what are the names mentioned in it.  In the Mahayana tradition it is usual to begin any practices by supplicating the lineage so as to express our faith, respect and appreciation for them having enabled our understanding of the dharma.  So this supplication makes reference to teachers of the lineage who have passed on insight from their own practice and study and through which we have benefitted.

We look forward to seeing you in person in the Small Meeting Room (bell on the bottom left) at the Quaker’s Meeting House, 126 Hampton Road, Redland Road, Bristol, BS6  6JE or online via Zoom using this link 

Time – 7.30 to 8.45 pm
