49th-Day Lama Chopa Tsog for the Swift Return of Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Tuesday 3:30 - 9:00pm

Join us as we celebrate the life of our most beloved Guru Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The 49th day since Kyabje Lama Zopa took his final breath is May 31st. We will be having the 49th-day practice on May 30th so we are practicing at approximately the same time as Kopan Monastery.

Venerable Angie Muir will lead Lama Chopa with Tsog Offering in the Main Gompa for the swift return of Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Today is also Guru Rinpoche Day and an even more powerful time to perform this practice for the swift return of Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

We have amended the original schedule so that we do not overlap with the Manjushri Jenang His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be giving. We apologize if that causes any inconvenience.

3:30 – 4:30pm Light Offerings at the 100, 000 Stupa Project

In-Person only.

5:00 – 6:30pm Lama Chopa Tsog Offering

Important things to note:

  • If you would like to help set up all the offerings in the Gompa please arrive by 2:30pm.
  • We will be serving a vegetarian soup with bread in the gompa for dinner while we have story time.
  • Please feel free to bring offerings for Tsog.
  • If you are coming In-Person please register so we can cater and set up the gompa accordingly.

About Lama Chopa

Lama Chopa, also called Guru Puja, is a beautiful, profound practice where we make offerings to and request blessings and inspiration from the Three Jewels and the Spiritual Teacher (whether or not the teacher is physically present).

Lama Chopa with Tsog Offering is an excellent practice for accumulating merit and pacifying obstacles on the path to enlightenment.

The Tsog Offering portion of the puja fulfills a commitment* for those Highest Yoga Tantra practitioners practicing Mother Tantra, and restores vows and pledges that have degenerated.

*Highest Yoga Tantra Practitioners who would like to participate in offering Tsog at home may set out offerings of fruit, food and flowers on their home altars and have on hand a small amount of meat and alcohol.

Phabongkha Dechen Nyingpo usually emphasizes that even if one can’t do much else in daily life, Guru Puja is the essential practice. … This practice of Guru Puja is very profound, with many extra benefits, and is very quick to bring enlightenment. ~ Lama Zopa Rinpoche
