In light of the coronavirus outbreak, to protect the well-being and safety of everyone, Palpung Thubten Chöling Monastery remains closed to the public. 

This class is being offered remotely on Zoom. If you would like to participate please email Lama Lhadrun.


Lama Norgyal will be teaching on and leading the sangha in the chanting of Calling the Lama from Afar. Written by the great master Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, this text is a powerful supplication to invoke the blessings of the lama and the great masters of all four Tibetan Buddhist lineages.  A combination of profound meditation instruction and plain-spoken reminders about the way we can delude ourselves on the path, this melodiously sung devotional prayer is an inspiration for practitioners of all levels.

Join us on-line as we celebrate the shortest day of the year, welcome the returning light, assuage obstacles and karmic debt, and pray for all those who have passed. 

This session is being offered remotely on Zoom. If you would like to participate please email Lama Lhadrun.

 

4:00 pm  | Chanting Chenrezig Sadhana and Evening Fire Ceremony

We chant and meditate on Chenrezig in order to realize our inborn great compassion. Guru Vajradhara Tai Situ Rinpoche has said that, “Chenrezig is the embodiment of compassion, Bodhicitta. We reach Buddhahood intentionally, and the intention is Bodhicitta. That is what Chenrezig represents. The Chenrezig Sadhana is the most sacred and profound sadhana. By practicing it with awareness, you can attain Chenrezig’s enlightened body, speech, and mind.”

Sür (evening fire offering ceremony) is an offering to the 4 guests: the Buddhas & Bodhisattvas; Protectors; sentient beings; and those with whom we have karmic debts. It averts obstacles and sickness and is dedicated to those who are dying, beings in the Bardo, and to beings with whom we have karmic debts.

 

Please feel free to send in short prayers with an offering of $5 or more. They will be read aloud to the assembly before the chanting begins.
