Buddhist ceremony to make mountains of merit and purify broken samaya. Done in English so we can learn great meaning and visualisation.
To complete the path to enlightenment we need to maintain a strong and pure relationship with the guru. We do this by relating to the different aspects of the guru, and to ultimately bring forth the inner guru, the purity of our own mind. This puja contains the whole path to enlightenment, and creates a powerful potential for spiritual growth.
Performing the ceremony in English gives us a chance to become familiar with the meaning and purpose of each prayer to deepen our practice. There will be a screenshare to help with visualisation. Remember to download the text beforehand!
There will be a chance to make personal dedications. Have a cup of tea or juice ready to offer during the ceremony, and also set up some food offerings on your altar if you wish. Arrange your ritual implements including inner offering (if you have them).
Tsog is offered on the Tibetan 10th and 25th of each month, as a way to hasten realisations. Everyone is welcome, although the practice is especially important for those with an HYT initiation or a commitment to learn and perform this practice.
