Open Day at Rimé Institute
August 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Open Day gives families and friends an opportunity to visit the temple, enjoy some meditation and find out about the many activities we offer to our local community.
Once a year we offer a special chance for everyone to view our rare and precious 24 Armed Kalachakra statue. Information sessions will be held throughout the day which explain the meaning of the different features of the statue and their significance to our everyday life.
We have chosen this date because of the significance of there being a total solar eclipse on the 21st of August. An eclipse day has special significance within the Kalachakra teachings as it is considered a particularly powerful day for practice where our karmic actions are significantly multiplied. The solar eclipse also has influence over our internal universe as it is said to slow the flow of the network of inner winds making it easier to direct them into the central channel, bringing us closer to our own enlightened nature.
The open day will run from 10am-4pm and will have a variety of activities and classes for everyone to enjoy. We will be offering adult and children’s meditation classes, food stalls, goods stalls and giving people the opportunity to view the statue and talk to some of the Rime members. It will be a great community day for those who wish to come along and see what we are all about.
