Monday 5 to Friday 9 February
Great Protector Ritual
Traditionally, the period around New Year’s is considered positive for the purification of mind’s veils and for spiritual accomplishments. During the five days preceding the Tibetan New Year, we carry out the ritual dedicated to the Dharma Protectors. The goal of this practice is to purify the negativities of the past year. Practitioners are welcome to attend.
Saturday, February 10
Tibetan New Year, Year of the Wood Dragon
The day of the Tibetan New Year, the first new moon of the year, is a particularly important day for Dharma Practice.
Smoke Purification Ritual
The fourth day of the New Year, this ritual allows us to make offerings to all classes of beings in order to create positive conditions for the coming year. At this time, we also change the long, five-colored banners.
