FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 4 @ 7:30 pm: Dewachen prayer
This Friday Khenpo has announced that he will give us both the prayer and teaching on
“Prayer to be Reborn in the Buddha Field of Dewachen”.
This practice allows one to use this prayer along with developing the 4 other causes so that , at the time of death, one will go immediately to the Buddha Field of Dewachen (know as the Western Buddha Field).
This Pure land is considered the “best” as one remains there until one reaches complete enlightenment.
Many of you have been asking for Phowa and Khenpo feels that this prayer will be a strong practice for us.
We are working to locate an English translation of the prayer and hope you can attend and bring friends.
No previous empowerment is required, but please email us back a confirmation so we can plan for copies.
PLEASE, we are asking for monetary Donations . Whatever you can offer , we appreciate.
Your donations go both to support our teacher and also to help us build a new roof for Dorje Ling!!
And not only will you get merit, but you can also get a tax deduction!
