Meditation Day Course

Saturday 26 October | 10.00am – 5.00pm

Meditation Day Course with Maitreya Centre Principal Teacher, James Baskerville

‘This diagram reveals the complete path to liberation and full enlightenment’…With Dharma Wisdom, if we contemplate and meditate on the meaning of the diagram of the Wheel of Life we can gain many experiences and realisations of the stages of the path.‘ – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Joyful Path of Good Fortune

The Wheel of Life is a well known image from Buddhist iconography but few people understand the profound symbolism contained within it. The diagram was created by Buddha to communicate – through images – the extent of the realms of existence, the mechanisms of karma and rebirth and the path that leads to liberation from the cycle of impure life.

On this day course, Buddhist Teacher James Baskerville will explain the meaning of this profound diagram and guide meditations based on the symbols contained within it.

Everyone is welcome.

The day course will be guided by James Baskerville, Principal Teacher at Maitreya Kadampa Buddhist Centre.

James has been practising and teaching Kadampa Buddhism for over twenty years and has engaged in extensive meditation retreats, including silent retreat. He is especially known for his clarity, humour and inspirational presentation of Buddha’s teachings.
