The puja contains the whole path to enlightenment and creates a powerful potential of spiritual growth for the participants. It is rich in symbolism, and includes calling the lama from afar, lineage prayers, re-taking one’s vows, and Tsog offering. Reliance on our spiritual teacher is the foundation of all spiritual progress. In the puja we pay homage to the lineage lamas and their vast qualities, using the traditional Tibetan tunes that are said to come from the dakinis and bless one’s mind-stream.
You will also have the opportunity to make personal dedications for the well-being of friends and family, for the sick and vulnerable, for healing the planet, for the success of your studies or a project, or your Dharma aspirations. Held on the Tibetan 10th and 25th each month. Everyone is welcome at this epic (3 hour) version of the Guru Puja – it is a profound yet joyous spiritual celebration!
