Losar (Tibetan New Year) Schedule 2017: Year of the Fire Rooster

We invite you to join the Sangha of KTC to our Losar (Tibetan New Year) chanting activities and celebration. The dates of the chanting practices are listed below. To confirm starting times for chanting, please call close to each event (845-297-2500).

9:00 am | Morning Fire Offering (Sang)
This special morning purification fire ceremony is an offering to all worldly gods and the 4 guests: Buddhas & Bodhisattvas; Protectors; sentient beings; and those with whom we have karmic debts. This practice pacifies war, encourages peace and averts sickness.  It also creates merit and concludes the year-end chanting by purifying any remaining obstacles.

 

There are many ways to particpate in these auspicious activities. During all of these dates, the shrine room is open to the public. Everyone is welcome to join us for any amount of time. Additionally, it is possible to sponsor the chanting.


For those who wish to sponsor the chanting, donations can be made towards meals, fire offering ceremonies, or the tea served during the chanting. General contributions towards these special practices are also welcome. Be sure to include a prayer with your donation which will be read aloud to the assembly.

You may make your donations on-line or simply mail your tax-deductible contribution to:

Kagyu Thubten Chöling
Attn: Office
245 Sheafe Road, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590.

Please make checks payable to Kagyu Thubten Choling or KTC.  For credit card payments (VISA or MasterCard), mail a donation form to the above KTC address or fax it to (845) 297-5761.  For your protection, please do not email your credit card information.

 

As we are not able to check email during chanting events, please send your prayer request and sponsorship information 48 hours before the first day of chanting to guarantee that we receive it in time to announce your prayer. If you are not able to do that, please leave a short but clear message of your prayer on  845-297-2500  and we will do our best to have your prayer announced. 

There is no charge for attending the chanting but reservations are required one week in advance if you plan to join us for meals and/or need overnight accommodations. Please see General Information about Events at KTC for details. Please send an email to reservations@kagyu.com if you are joining us for meals only.
