Vajrasattva Tsog for First Wheel-Turning Day
Monday 1 August @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
First Wheel-Turning Day celebrates the first teaching given by the Buddha upon his enlightenment. It is one of the most auspicious days of the Buddhist calendar, where the merit is greatly multiplied. This tsog offering is a short yet profound ceremony of massive purification and merit, especially purifying any broken commitments, and dedicating to our gurus long life.
We chant the beautiful Tibetan tunes, make offerings and recite the 100 Vajrasattva mantra – a profound method to meditate on emptiness – the ultimate purification.
Tsog means “gathering”. By gathering together to offer tsog we are making space. When the right space opens, realisations come as if magnetically attracted. Even if some of us are gathering across the digital divide, in our heart we gather together the things we’re offering, and offer across space and across time.
Today is also International Sangha Day, where we honour the monks and nuns of the FPMT. All donations will go towards our LTC sangha.
This ceremony will be led by:
