This Dharma has been used by many practitioners to keep their bodies warm in the cold Himalayan snows, and cool in the blazing heat of the Gobi desert.

Prajna Akasagarbha
The Prajna Akasagarbha is an esoteric Buddhist healing dharma practice which literally means, wisdom hidden in the womb of space. This ancient dharma practice of Akasagarbha Bodhisattva, which was hidden in China for centuries, is considered a key to enlightenment, valued for its ability to increase physical vitality and energy, and bring forth rapid spiritual progress.

In essence, it is a sequence of movements (mudras) combined with visualizations and a mantra that help to align the individual to the universe and awaken the sleeping seeds of Alaya consciousness in the body.

The 16 basic mudras, when practiced diligently, will help the practitioner experience the gravitational pulls of the heavenly bodies, grasp the rhythm of nature, and attain health, prosperity, and wisdom. It flows like water and moves slowly with great depth. It is fun to do and suitable for all ages and abilities. Wear comfortable clothing.

Medicine Buddha Dharma
The sanskrit name of the Medicine Buddha is Bhaisajyaraja. The Chinese call him Yao Shi Fo, the Tibetans Sangye Menla, and the Japanese Yakushi. He is a great Master who made many vows to alleviate the suffering of all beings. The Medicine Master Lapis Lazuli Light King Buddha Extinguishing Disaster and Prolonging Life Dharma is for healing, protection, and prevention of illness and disease, as well as for extinguishing disaster, extending life, and bringing forth good luck. Includes separate purifying techniques for food, water and air.

Buddhist Healing Techniques
This workshop contains various meditations, applications, and techniques used by Buddhist healers to handle situations ranging from a simple headache to tumors and cancer.

Black Furious Manjusri Bodhisattva Bodyguardian Dharma
This teaching was brought from India to China in 749 AD, and was traditionally taught only to initiated disciples. This dharma is used for spiritual protection from negative forces, and to extinguish accidents, disasters, and bad fortune.

Black Manjusri builds a foundation for advanced Feng Shui, space clearing, and dealing with problems associated with unusual phenomenon.

Notes and Events:

We gather as a Sangha (community of practitioners) in the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh (known as Thay) to provide an opportunity to those that wish to deepen their Mindfulness Meditation Practice.

Second and Fourth Monday of the Month

Our Sangha Practice includes Mindful Movements, Recitation of the Mindfulness Trainings, Dharma teachings, Sharing, Sitting Meditation and Singing.  Some days we do Walking Meditation.  All based on the daily practice at Thich Nhat Hanh’s Monastery in southern France.  We start at 5:30 and end around 8:00.

First, Third and Fifth(extra) Monday of the Month

We meet for a sitting meditation starting with Mindful Movements at 5:30 pm, meditation at 5:45 pm and ending at 6:45 pm.

We meet at the Meditation Center, 3821 Airport Blvd.,Suite B, Mobile, AL (use the middle door facing Airport Blvd.)  Please arrive 10 minutes early so we can maintain a serene environment for meditation.  Cushions and chairs are provided; you are welcome to bring your own cushions and dress comfortably.

New people who want to learn more about meditation or our practice are always welcome at any of our Sanghas practice or meditations.  One of our members will be happy to introduce you to the basics of the practice and answer any questions you have.  Everyone is welcome, regardless of religious affiliation or level of experience with Buddhism.

As Thay said during a Dharma Talk at the Hand of the Buddha Retreat in Plum Village:

“If we know how to live our daily life in mindfulness, concentration, and harmony, then peace, happiness and brotherhood become a reality.”

“In society, much of our suffering comes from feeling disconnected from one another.  We often do not feel a real connection even with people we live close to, such as our neighbors, our co-workers and even our family members.  Each person lives separately, cut off from the support of the community.  Being with the Sangha can heal these feelings of isolation and separation.  We practice together, meditate, share and discuss the Dharma as a way of life.  Just by participating with other fellow practitioners in these activities, we can experience a sense of peace, love and acceptance.

Thay often says that the Sangha is a garden, full of many varieties of trees and flowers.  When we can look at ourselves and at others as beautiful, unique flowers and trees, we can truly grow to understand and love one another.  One flower may bloom early in the spring and another flower may bloom in late summer.  One tree may bear many fruits and another tree may offer cool shade.  No one plant is greater, or lesser, or the same as any other plant in the garden.  Each member of the Sangha also has unique gifts to offer to the community.  We each have areas that need attention as well.  When we can appreciate each member’s contribution and see our weaknesses as potential for growth, we can learn to live together harmoniously.  Our practice is to see that we are a flower or a tree, and that we are the whole garden as well, all interconnected.”
