Join us in our puja Offering to the Spiritual Guide, which we hold on the 10th and 25th of each month of the year. In this practice we engage in the Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa, a special method for receiving the blessings of our Spiritual Guide.
Although the main practice in Offering to the Spiritual Guide is reliance upon the Spiritual Guide, this puja also includes all the essential practices of the stages of the path (Lamrim) and training the mind (Lojong), as well as both stages of Highest Yoga Tantra.
During the prayers we make offerings of food to our Spiritual Guide and all the holy beings (the Tsog). The purpose of making offerings is to improve our mind of giving. These food offerings are set out very beautifully on a table in front of the shrine before the prayers start, and during the prayers we offer these to Buddha, our Spiritual Guide, and the Tsog.
After the prayers are over, everyone is welcome to stay and eat some of these offerings together.
You are welcome to bring your own offerings – of food that is ready to eat, or drinks.
Please arrive in advance of the advertised start time so that you are settled in the Meditation Room before the prayers start.Class/Course Fee: Free
