Discover the Rich Inner World of Tibetan Ritual
Special annual events and blessings, and regular practices recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to ensure our harmony and success.
We celebrate the major auspicious days on the Buddhist calendar, including Buddha’s Birthday, Day of Miracles, and Descent from Tushita. We also regularly recite the Diamond Cutter Sutra, Sanghata Sutra, and the Sutra of Golden Light.
We try to hold an annual extensive Medicine Buddha Puja and the special All-Night Tara Puja. These longer ceremonies are very powerful for bringing blessings and dispelling all types of obstacles.
If you cannot make it to the puja but would still like to be involved, you can part-sponsor a puja by donating securely online. Email in your dedications so we can read them out to the group. You can dedicate for the well-being of friends and family, for the sick and vulnerable, for healing the planet, and for the success of your studies, of a project, and all your Dharma aspirations!

Medicine Buddha Puja April 2021
From Series: "Medicine Buddha Pujas"
If you cannot make it to puja in person, you can offer the Medicine Buddha puja at home! It involves offerings and prayers to each of the seven Medicine Buddhas. Merely hearing or reciting their names can purify aeons of negative karma. This puja is especially effective to remove the root causes of problems, emotional turmoil, illness and obstacles. It is also very auspicious for the success of projects. There is a short mantra recitation at the end with a blessing for one's medicines.
