FPMT Bay Hosts Long Life Puja for Choden Rinpoche

Join us for to offer a Long Life Puja to our Guru, Choden Rinpoche
Sunday July 7, 2013 at 10am
at Vajrapani Institute

We invite everyone to join the FPMT Bay centers for this wonderful and very auspicious event!

One of the most moving ceremonies in Tibetan Buddhism is the Long Life Puja for a teacher, an elaborate display of devotion towards a spiritual guide comprising heartfelt prayers and praises, and a procession of symbolic offerings.

The purpose of the long life puja is for students to purify the mistakes that occur in relationship to their teacher and to create the causes and conditions to continue to recieve benefit from that teacher for a very long time.

Join us in creating the causes for our precious teacher to remain!  You are welcome to make sponsorship towards a specific item or make a donation towards this auspicious event below.
