On Saturday September 11 we are dedicating the thousand butterlamps and offerings in remembrance of the victims of the 9/11 terror attacks and in honor of their families. May the victims be reborn in Dewachen, and may their loved ones be free of all suffering and quickly attain enlightenment. May all beings give rise to bodhicitta.
10:00am | Kalu Rinpoche’s Practice of Aspiration Prayers (Monlam Choga), followed by the Short Practice of the Peaceful & Wrathful Deities (Shitro)
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.
