Course description:                                                                                  Mantra means, ‘protection for the mind’.  Reciting mantras is a powerful form of meditation, especially suitable for busy modern life, which subdues negativity and cultivates a peaceful, strong mind.  On this course we will explore the meaning and practical use of several blessed mantras as taught by Buddha.  Everyone is welcome on this course, regardless of experience or background.
