It has been requested of ZaChoeje Rinpoche to keep the Medicine Buddha sand mandala intact a few more months so those who could not join us can come to the center to take advantage of the spiritual energy inherent in the Mandala. The Medicine Buddha dismantling ceremony will now be held in the early spring.

Each year we celebrate Ahimsa in celebration of the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.  In the spirit of Ahimsa, a Sanskrit word, for nonviolence, the monks will be giving to us the Menla Dochog ceremony.  This auspicious ceremony brings the healing power of Medicine Buddha helping it spread throughout the community.  In honor of His Holiness, together, we will recite his long life prayer.

Please share with us the beginning of your holiday season by joining us for Ahimsa and the auspicious Menla Dochog prayer ceremony.
