Join us for special prayers and dedications on this annual celebration of the founder of the Gelug lineage. The puja contains the whole path to enlightenment, 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. In the puja we pay homage to the lineage lamas and their vast qualities. The puja contains the whole path to enlightenment and creates a powerful potential of spiritual growth for the participants.
The traditional Tibetan tunes are said to come from the dakinis and bless one’s mind-stream. They carry a power and blessing in themselves, moving both the heart and the mind.
This evening will include a bath offering to cleanse broken samaya with the guru, as well as lineage prayers, re-taking vows, and tsog offering.
