LOVE AND COMPASSION MEDITATION
Wednesday April 23, 7:00-8:00 pm
Join us in a meditation on love and compassion, which opens our minds and hearts unconditionally to limitless sentient beings.
Everybody is welcome to join this meditation. The Wednesday guided meditations are popular among spiritual practitioners of all traditions.
Thursday April 24, 7:00-8:00 pm
The Tsok offering puja is a ceremony that involves making offerings of food and drink to the Buddha, the Bodhisattvas and our spiritual Gurus in conjunction with prayers, chanting, and meditation. The ceremony is an excellent method of accumulating merit, purifying negativity, and giving and receiving blessings. The Tsok offering is important for renewing commitments and averting obstacles. It is a special method through which we come under the care and guidance of the Dakas and Dakinis who bestow completion stage realizations.
