Daily Morning Services (Mon, Jul 01, 2013 6:00 am - 8:00 am)

These services are held everyday, but their details are only listed on the first day of the month.

 

You are welcome to join us for all or part of our morning services, called "tsokpa", to sit in meditation. Chanting is in Tibetan, so for those interested in participating in the chanting, transliterated copies of the text are available for use in the shrine room. Morning Tsokpa includes Tara and Medicine Buddha.

(Free of charge)

Sang, Morning Fire Offering Ceremony (Mon, Jul 01, 2013 10:00 am - 11:00 am)

Sang is a special morning purification fire ceremony. It 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 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.

Kagyu Thubten Chöling Monastery is happy to announce a series of monthly teachings by Chamgon Kenting Tai Situ Rinpoche on The Ornament of Precious Liberation by Gampopa. These teaching will be live streamed and are available only at participating Dharma Centers.

The Ornament of Precious Liberation, a foundation of Buddhist study and practice, is a primary text of the Kagyu Lineage that elucidates the stages of the Buddhist path. It includes teachings on Buddha-nature, finding a spiritual master, impermanence, karma, the cultivation of bodhicitta, the development of the six perfections, the ten Bodhisattva Levels, achievement of Buddhahood, and the four major activities of a Buddha to benefit beings.

Gampopa said "Studying The Ornament of Precious Liberation and the Precious Garland of the Excellent Path is equivalent to meeting me in person."

The course is scheduled to be taught in monthly teachings over a two year period. Due to the time difference, Kagyu Thubten Chöling will present the teachings as weekend seminars once a month, at a time convenient for New York area residents. Anyone with a sincere interest in Buddhist philosophy and practice is welcome to participate and completing the full course is highly encouraged. English translation by Richard Barron (Lama Chokyi Nyima).
