Dear Dharma Friends,
As you may know, Vajrayana Foundation has cancelled the Annual Vajrakilaya Gutor Losar Retreat this year out of overwhelming sadness and respect for our Lord of Refuge Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa Rinpoche’s Maha Parinirvana. We are using this time to do Vajrasattva Dorsem Lama Chopa practice and receive the blessings of Rinpoche’s wisdom mind.
We will not have a party on Losar Day (March 3 year of the Water Tiger), but we will do Tsokye T’huk T’hik and Orgyen Khandro Norlha pujas as we do each year. We will do this in order to connect to the transcendent energy of these profound Dudjom Tersar practices, for which Rinpoche most kindly gave us empowerments in 2018.
We will also be raising Dudjom prayer flags, as we do every year. During this tragic time for so many, it is even more important to raise life force (lung-ta) and to accumulate virtue for everyone living, for those who have passed, for those beings suffering in every realm, and for practitioners, to purify our path so we can know the true meaning of meditation. Raise Dudjom Prayer Flags
With love, Lama Sonam
