Tsog is a special offering to the gurus. It is called the feast of the heroes and heroines, and is crucial in creating the joyous effort necessary for spiritual development. Geshe Zopa will explain the profound meaning of tsog and the many benefits of this twice-monthly practice, and will then lead us in offering the Vajrasattva Tsog together, with the beautiful tunes and traditional drums and cymbals.
We make the special Vajrasattva Tsog offering to celebrate the anniversary of Lama Yeshe, the founder of our centre and the FPMT. Lama passed away on Losar in 1984, one of the auspicious and powerful days of the Buddhist calendar. Reliance on a spiritual teacher is the foundation of all spiritual progress, and in this short ritual we learn to relate to the secret and inner aspects of the guru, not just the ordinary form.
Geshe Tenzin Zopa possesses vast scriptural knowledge, extensive teaching experience, has successfully managed major projects, has completed many retreats including a 6 month Highest Yoga Tantra retreat with the late Geshe Lama Konchog and is highly skilled in rituals, astrological observations and religious dance. Geshe-la teaches in English straight from the heart.
