Full Moon day of prayer

The full moon occurs this Sunday Feb 9. Instead of the usual Sunday Dharma teaching, we will perform Medicine Buddha and Tara prayers. H.H. Dalai Lama has requested for temples to join in the effort to perform prayers on this day. The prayers will help with the coronavirus outbreak and other sicknesses.

In the morning we will perform Medicine Buddha prayers starting at 10am. We will have a short lunch break, and resume in the early afternoon with Tara prayer.

For the practice on this day, please

– bring your vajra and bell if you have them
– bring offerings for the altar: flowers, fruits or cookies made without eggs or animal fats.

– avoid eating meat, eggs, onions or garlic during the day.

Ganden Ngamchoe Tsog Offering

Lama Tsongkhapa Day

We are celebrating Ganden Ngamchoe, the anniversary of Lama Tsongkhapa’s parinirvana on Saturday, December 21st. for more details about this great master, please visit https://www.buddhamaitreyaproject.org/tsongkhapa-2019/

Geshe la said this year is especially important as it happens to be the 600th year of Lama Tsongkhapa’s parinirvana. It is also a very good way to end the year. Our practice of Tsog offering will be a very good opportunity to purify past negative karma and accumulate powerful merit in the future. We are truly so fortunate to have our kind and learned Geshe la to lead us in such practices. Please join us for:

Tsog offering: 3pm

Potluck dinner: 5pm
