Vajrakilaya Practice Day: Saturday, February 10, 10am – 5pm
Please join us for a day of Vajrakilaya practice to avert obstacles of the old year and prepare for the Dog Year. Vajrakilaya practice is traditionally offered prior to Losar. It is especially helpful in purifying our obstacles and karma from the previous year, clearing the slate for us to begin the Dog year with positivity and fewer hindrances in our practices and intentions.
Empowerment is required to participate
Nyinay Retreat: Saturday, February 24, 6am – 8pm
The first month of the Tibetan year is considered highly auspicious and the opportunity to magnify all positive actions by 100,000 is taken to heart. This shortened version (Nyinay) of the traditional purification retreat of Chenrezig (Nyung-nay*) is a potent method for us to create merit in our busy lives as householders.
*The practice of Nyung-nay is a swift and powerful means to clear away obstacles to our physical and mental well-being. Nyung-nay brings the practitioner to the essence of the supreme secret of Avalokiteshvara, the compassionate expression of all buddhas
