Dear Dharma Friends,
This Wednesday, May 11, we will defer our regular weekly yidam practice for an all-day White Zambhala Fortune Box ritual that will be conducted by Khenpo Choephel and Lama Kalsang. The ritual will take place between 10am and 7pm and is open to all. You may arrive at any point during the day and stay as long as you like. We just ask that attendees be aware that there is a ritual in process and enter / leave quietly and respectfully.
Our Saturday and Sunday practices remain as usual.
We ask that only fully vaccinated people come in to the center. If you do come in for a practice, please be mindful of your neighbors and allow spacing between yourselves. If you do not feel well for any reason, please do not attend in person. Please see our Covid Policy on the website for details.
May the illumination of wisdom teachings shine through all obscurations of our mind, and may our practices be beneficial to all beings!
Wednesday, May 11, 10am – 7pm. White Zambhala Fortune Box Ritual. In person only.

It summons long life, prosperity, the power of the five elements, the power of gods, Nagas, Yakshas, kings & queens, good food, drinks, clothing so and so forth… from all directions and the three worlds. Offerings will be consecrated in a box or a bag called an auspicious fortune box and blessings also consecrated into attendees. This is important for our communities and enriches prosperity and a happy long life.
