When: Friday, March 18, 2022, at 7:00 AM – 8:00 AM EDT
The practice of the Mahāyāna precepts is a wonderful opportunity to accumulate merit on the Holy Day of Miracles (Chotrul Duchen). Geshe la will transmit the practice, which involves keeping precepts of pure conduct and fasting after the noontime meal for a period of 24 hours. You can learn more about taking these precepts here.
Geshe Sonam will also grant the oral transmission of the Prayer of Rebirth in Sukhavati by Lama Tsongkhapa, a beautiful practice to accumulate causes to be reborn in the Pure Land of Amitabha, and a powerful prayer to recite for those who are passing away.
Register ahead to attend on Zoom.
The transmission of the prayer at this hour is for the benefit of students in the European timezone. Geshe la encourages those who are in other time zones to take the precepts using the recording from Lama Zopa Rinpoche if they have not received the transmission. The transmission of the Sukhavati Prayer will be given again in the evening for North American students unable to attend the morning session.
Supporting the Dharma is an incredibly powerful and necessary action.
This is the highest form of generosity, sharing with others the path to full awakening. Offerings to the Dharma create the causes to never be separated and to have conditions to realize the teachings. It deepens your connection with Dharma teachers, and you become connected with our community.
