Special Losar (Tibetan New Year) Practices led by Lama Lobtsul Rinpoche February 1 - 5, 2019
Start the Lunar New Year right by clearing obstacles and reversing negativities!
Tashi Delek everyone,
We will hold a Vajrakilaya retreat February 1-3, Medicine Buddha February 4th. Tibetan New Year celebration on the 5th.
Friday at 7-9 pm, Lama Lobstul Rinpoche will give the Vajrakilaya reading transmission and then lead Vajrakilaya practice.
Saturday will be Vajrakilaya practice 10-12 noon and 2-4 pm with a Tsog offering in the afternoon.
Sunday will be Vajrakilaya practice with Tsog 10-12 noon and Prajna Paramita with Guktar offering 2-5.
Guktar is the Tibetan word for 29 where we offer a torma with the idea of getting rid of all our negative karma,
bad deeds, and all negative acts so that good karma can come with the new year. Then we will have Gutik,
which is a nine ingredient soup, that Lama will make. This will be for everyone.
Monday February 4th will be normal Medicine Buddha. Losar proper, Tibetan New Year will be February 5th at 6 pm.
We will have Riwo Sancho and a potluck dinner afterwards.
Suggested donation for the Vajrakilaya retreat is $10 a session but Sunday afternoon and Losar a free.
