Please Join Us for
Guru Puja (Lama Chöpa with Tsog)
by donation – all are welcome
A puja is a beautiful ceremony in which meditational prayers are offered to the Buddhas. You may early, if curious, to help set up, or – come to participate, or just observe!
We invite flower, or food offerings for the altar.
The Guru Puja lays the whole path to enlightenment on our mindstream, connects us more strongly to our teachers, and allows us to quickly and effectively accumulate merit and purify negative karma. Its practice consists of making offerings to and requesting inspiration from the Spiritual Teacher, seen as the embodiment of the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha).
We unite our minds with the holy mind of the Spiritual Teacher, who is considered the root and life-force of the spiritual path, in order to receive blessings and future teachings.
