Kalu Rinpoche’s Practice of Aspiration Prayers (Monlam Choga), followed by the Short Practice of the Peaceful & Wrathful Deities (Shitro)
June 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Maitreya Shrine Room is now open. Visitors are required to wear masks. Please note that accommodations remain closed to the public.
Please join us in the chanting of the Monlam Choga, 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.
This chanting session will not be Zoomed. Because of the Nyungne retreat being held in the Maitreya Shrineroom at this time, the Monlam Choga chanting will be done in the upstairs shrine room in the old building.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night classes will continue on Zoom only. To join us via Zoom please click here.
Please do not visit the monastery if you feel unwell and/or have a fever.
All visitors are required to wear a mask indoors. Children 12 years old and younger must be supervised. No pets please.
