Amitabha Chanting for Liberating the Deceased and Benefiting Beings (Qing Ming) (Sat, Apr 06, 2013 6:30 am - 12:30 pm)

 

AmitabhaOn the occasion of Qing Ming, Kagyu Thubten Chöling will be making prayers and offerings for our parents, ancestors, and the deceased.  We will be performing the short Amitabha practice as well as offering 1000 butterlamps and aspiration prayers for the well being of us and all other beings, especially those to whom we dedicate the practice by name, both living and deceased.  For all beings, this practice will help to create favorable conditions and enhance their well-being.

 

Lama Norlha Rinpoche has said that, "no matter how long ago your deceased dear ones or relatives have passed away, it is still very vital to make prayers and offerings for them to increase their merit."

 

You may donate any amount and provide us with the names for dedication (both living and deceased).  To make these dedications, download the Qing Ming Dedication Form .

 

6:30 am | Tong Chö
A traditional Tong Chö of 1,000 butter lamps, 1,000 bowls of saffron water and 300 bowls filled with rice, incense and flowers is offered weekly, accompanied by chanting of the Chenrezig practice.

 

9:30 am | Monlam Choga, followed by the Short Shitro Practice and Short Amitabha Practice
Chanting of the Monlam Choga (Prayers of Auspiciousness), a practice of offering and aspiration prayers compiled by Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche. This is followed by the short liturgy of Shitro (Peaceful and Wrathful Deities), a profound practice from the cycle of teachings and meditations of the Tibetan Book of the Dead. We dedicate this practice to the deceased in order to purify negativities, avert obstacles in the bardo, and establish a connection with the deities that will ripen in future lives.


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.
