On this most holy day of Saga Dawa Duchen, we will be sitting to practice the Ritual of the Bodhisattva Vow, and Mipham Rinpoche’s Shakyamuni Buddha practice. No empowerment is required, and all can participate for any period of time. Both these practices are available in English, Tibetan, French and Spanish or German courtesy of Lotsawa House.

Butterlamp or other offerings can be made online, with dedications read in the morning and in the afternoon.

Especially during these turbulent times, it is important that we re-examine where we are on the path, and how that manifests also in our daily life and engagement with others.

The first is a more elaborate one from our own teacher in this lifetime His Eminence Chagdud Rinpoche, and the second presents pith instructions from the great Chokgyur Lingpa:
