Sutra & Light Offerings for DAY OF MIRACLES

Virtual Events Virtual Events

Friday 18 March @ 7:00 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 generate realisations. By offering a simultaneous recitation of the Diamond Cutter Sutra, and becoming living light offerings together, over zoom we can offer on behalf of the world!

We invite you to deck yourself and your own room in as many light offerings as you can, and together we will do the short Atisha light offering practice. After this, reciting the sutra together online – joined by pixels of light – is a powerful way to remove the causes of darkness and confusion and plant the seeds of wisdom.

The sutra takes the form of an amazing conversation between Subhuti and the Buddha, a call and response that cuts through our grasping at inherent existence. Lama Zopa Rinpoche says that even just hearing about emptiness in this sutra, even with a mind of confusion, is like an atom bomb to the delusions! This short recitation helps to purify one’s speech and bring the blessings of the Buddha’s wisdom directly into your life.

The Day of Miracles is the culmination of 14 special Buddha Days starting on Tibetan New Year, so all actions done with a positive motivation have incredible power to bring far-reaching and beneficial results. Light offerings are also especially powerful in galvanising our wisdom and removing inner obstacles.

Rinpoche especially recommended for all of us here at LTC to recite the sutra together often, to ensure the continued flourishing of our centre – so your participation is greatly appreciated!

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.

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”.
