Guru Puja & Tsog (epic version) with the lot!

Hybrid Hybrid Events

Saturday 18 May @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm

Containing the whole path to enlightenment, this puja is the foundation of all spiritual progress, and is a profound and joyous event! Nurture the powerful potential for spiritual growth with a ceremony rich in symbolism. Reliance on our spiritual teacher is the foundation of all spiritual progress, and this ceremony helps us create mountains of merit and purify broken samaya.

The prayers include calling the lama from afar, lineage prayers, re-taking one’s vows, and Tsog offering. 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 mindstream. They carry a power and beauty in themselves, moving both the heart and the mind.

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.

Lengthy yet profound – this puja is a joyous spiritual celebration! Please feel free to come and go as you need to during the ceremony. We will have a bottomless pot of chai throughout the night!

“Pabongka Dechen Nyingpo usually emphasizes that even if one can’t do much else in daily life, Guru Puja is the essential practice. This practice of Guru Puja is very profound, with many extra benefits, and is very quick to bring enlightenment.”

– Lama Zopa Rinpoche

“Pabongka also says ‘One hundred waters are contained in Guru Puja.’ Just as all the many streams from the snow mountains and other places go into the ocean, all the important practices of sutra and tantra are condensed here. If you do this practice every day, you don’t miss anything.”

– Lama Zopa Rinpoche

This ceremony will be led by:

Donate to a Puja

Can’t make it to puja but still want to be involved? You can make your donation here and we will purchase offerings on your behalf.

If you wish, email in a dedication to be read at puja, or come along via zoom and dedicate on the night.

If you prefer, donations can also be made via bank transfer: Langri Tangpa Centre Inc, ANZ Bank, BSB 014-508, Account 498788594, REF puja.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave us specific advice when we first moved to Camp Hill, that in order for the centre to survive and to flourish we needed great stores of merit. One of the practices he recommended was for us to do Tara Puja and Medicine Buddha Puja together as a group. So even if you cannot be there physically, you can still be very much involved. In this way, we can all contribute to the continuation of our wonderful LTC.

Many of us in the modern world are time-poor, but this need not be an obstacle to participating in the spiritual heart of Langri Tangpa Centre – the pujas and practices. Reading dedications from our people that couldn’t make it on the night helps to develop a sense of community, and brings a face to the dedication “for all sentient beings”.
