7pm, Saturday April 13th

With additional recitations of an abbreviated tsog (2 verses) to dispel hindrances to the good health and long life of H.H. the Dalai Lama.

Please join us for this 2-hour recitation practice, for the purpose of creating a good karmic connecting with the qualified spiritual masters.

Special message from Lama Zopa Rinpoche regarding practices to do because of the recent manifestation of obstacles to His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s health. (See news story.)

Lama Zopa Rinpoche checked, and is now advising all centers, projects and services to please make tsog offerings: requesting for His Holiness’ long life, and to be free of the present illness. Also to purify our own degenerated vows and samaya, and to hook realizations.

from FPMT Center Services

To fulfil the request for multiple tsog offerings, we will spend about a half hour extra reciting two additional verses (Appendix 3 of the Lama Chöpa book) many times.

Tibetan Date: 10th of lunar month. See more at FPMT Dharma Practice Dates.

Language: Tibetan and English

Performed on the 10th and 25th of the Tibetan Calendar

“If you are able to do the practice of Guru Puja in your daily life, it contains all the important points of sutra and tantra. It is a complete practice, and it shows the palm [which means the heart] of the instruction of the ear-lineage of Ganden.” – Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche

A beautiful, profound practice (in Tibetan and English) where we make offerings to our Spiritual Masters and the Three Jewels, requesting them to grant us blessings and inspiration. We will also make tsog offering – a commitment for those practicing Mother Tantra, which restores vows and pledges. The offerings of fruit, food and drink, which have been blessed during the puja are distributed among the participants and can be consumed by anyone who has faith in the Three Jewels.

Donations You are welcome to a donation toward the offerings if you like, through the website or in person. If you want to bring your own offerings, arrive early enough to set those up. There is no set fee to attend. The donation choices below are just for your convenience.
