Offering to the Spiritual Guide
Special Long Life Prayers
5 – 7pm
On Dharmachakra Day we celebrate Buddha’s Turning of the Wheel of Dharma – when he brought teachings on the path to Enlightenment into this world. This special day also celebrates the birthday of our Spiritual Guide, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. We hold long life prayers of Offering to the Spiritual Guide on this day.
This practice is a special Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa in conjunction with Highest Yoga Tantra that is a preliminary practice for Vajrayana Mahamudra. The main practice is relying upon our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha and making praises and requests, but it also includes all the essential practices of the stages of the path and training the mind, as well as both the generation stage and completion stage of Highest Yoga Tantra. By relying upon Je Tsongkhapa our compassion, wisdom, and spiritual power naturally increase. (2 hours)
