Join us as we celebrate the 69th birthday of Guru Vajradhara His Holiness Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa.
We are pleased to announce that the Maitreya Shrine Room is now open to visitors. Visitors are required to wear masks. Please note that accommodations remain closed to the public.
This event is also being offered remotely on Zoom. If you would like to participate, please click here.
9:30 am | Prayers for long life and auspicious conditions. These will include a special morning purification fire ceremony (Gelek Trinpung), the prayer to the Sixteen Arhats and the practice of White Tara. An offering of a Ku Sung Tuk ceremony (the symbols of enlightened body, speech and mind) will be inserted within the chanting. The assembly can offer katas following the Ku Sung Tuk.
There are many ways to share in the merit of these activities through sponsoring the fire offering ceremony and the tea served during the chanting. Be sure to include a prayer with your donation which will be read aloud to the assembly.
