Shakyamuni Buddha Puja for DAY OF MIRACLES

Hybrid Hybrid Events

Saturday 24 February @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

On this most special of Buddhist days, we will combine our collective efforts and good-heartedness to create mountains of merit and create the conditions to generate realisations in our mindstream.

The Day of Miracles is the culmination of the 14 special Buddha Days, starting on Losar (Tibetan New Year). All actions done with a positive motivation during this time have incredible power to bring far-reaching and beneficial results.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche emphasises how the Shakyamuni Puja is so important, as a practice that purifies the obstacles and accumulates the necessary conditions, the merits – such as the seven limb practice and mandala offering and the practice of requesting the merit field – that are done in order to receive blessings and for the mind to enter in the graduated path.

We offer this puja in English, singing the poetic verses with the traditional tunes. We recite praises to the Buddha based on stories from the Jataka Tales, make copious offerings, personal dedications, and strew flowers to the ten directions! You will have the opportunity to make personal dedications friends and family, and for the success of all your spiritual endeavours, the flourishing of Dharma, and for the resources needed to best benefit ourselves and others.

The most happy thing in my life, most fulfilling thing is to work for and to benefit sentient beings. Even just the mere thought to cause happiness to sentient beings, to benefit them, to free them from suffering is the BEST offering to all the buddhas and bodhisattvas. This is the best offering, the best puja; this is what pleases their holy mind most.

– Lama Zopa Rinpoche

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”.
