The Precious Sutra of The 35 Buddhas

April 3, 2016, at TRTCC

35 Buddhas

Venerable Khenpo Choephel, spiritual director of TRTCC, will teach on The Precious Sutra of The Thirty-Five Buddhas.

Sunday, April 3, 2016
10am-12pm: The Teaching of the Sutra
2-5pm: The Practice of Prostrations

The Sutra of the 35 Buddhas, also known as The Sutra of the Three Heaps, is a powerful purification practice which includes prostration, confession and dedication. The practice is done for the benefit of purifying negativity, accumulating merits, and especially for the purification of the downfall of all vows, including the Vinaya Vows, Bodhisattva Vows, and Tantra Samaya Vows.

Khenpo Choephel

Ven. Khenpo Choephel will explain the meaning and purpose of the teaching in details and lead us in the whole prostration practice.

We invite everyone to come to this event to learn about this practice and participate in the prostrations with us for the benefit of all beings.

Suggested donation for the teaching is $35 for the whole day. Please give what you can. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
