Course info

Offering to the Spiritual Guide Chanted Prayers

Offering to the Spiritual Guide Puja (or Lama Chopa in Tibetan) is traditionally done on the 10th and 25th of every month.  The main practice within the sadhana is relying on the Spiritual Guide, but it also includes all the essential practices of the stages of the path (Lamrim) and training the mind (Lojong). We develop a strong conviction that our Spiritual Guide is a Buddha, in particular the same nature as Je Tsongkapa. We make prostrations and requests and receive profound blessings.  In this way, our compassion, wisdom and spiritual power naturally increase. Because Je Tsongkapa is an emanation of Manjushri, his faithful disciples never experience difficulty in increasing their wisdom. There are many other benefits of engaging in this beautiful practice.  It is customary but not required to bring an offering to this event.
