1-3 May 2021 (3 days) - non-public streaming
Led by: Lama Rinchen.
There will be two sessions of puja daily: at 9:30a.m. and 2:30p.m.
We start on Saturday, the 1st of May at 9:30a.m. and finish on Monday, the 3rd of May at about 4:30p.m.
In order to take active part in the practice (recitation combined with meditation on Gonkar) it is necessary to have received full transmission: empowerment, oral instruction and lung.
Those who would like to contribute, but due to that reasons are not able to take active part, are welcome to make a donation for the materials we need during the ritual (rice for the offering bowls, oats for tormas, butter for ornaments, tealights, incense, products for tsok). Thanks to all these activities we accumulate merit and receive the same blessing of Gonkar as those who take active part in the practice. Blessing of Gonkar Drubpa - elaborated ritual of White Mahakala - benefits not only the participants of the puja, but also all who have positive bounds with them.
The Gonkar practice derives from the Shangpa Kagyu tradition. Gonkar, also called the White Protector (Mahakala), embodies the pacifying and increasing activity of all Buddhas. Realizing the perfect fulfilment of this practice, means to achieve the perfect Buddhahood. On a mundane level, White Mahakala practice increases life forces and longevity, multiplies merit and wisdom, and enhances prosperity. Therefore, Gonkar is known as the Yishin Norbu - the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel.
Registration deadline – till the 29th of April.
