February 15th, Thursday: 6 – 7:30 PM –Meditation on Forgiveness and Compassion led by Venerable Tenzin Legtsok
Forgiveness is a life changing act, an act of self-healing, self-liberation and self-empowerment; we do not have the power to change the past but we have power to forgive. No one can give us that power and no one can take it away from us. It is our wish to use it if we want. If we forgive with a compassionate heart it can set us free from all hurt, hopelessness, powerlessness and helplessness. But If we don’t generate compassion toward those who’ve harmed us and instead harm them back then the result is we are creating the cause to receive harm from others in the future. As His Holiness The Dalai Lama says “If you want to be selfish, be selfish in intelligent way”.

February 16th, Friday : Tibetan New Year Celebrations
Losar is the Tibetan New year. The first day of the Tibetan new year (Losar, February 16) until the fifteenth (March 1)—commemorate the special time when Guru Shakyamuni Buddha showed miraculous powers in order to subdue the Six Founders, who lacked faith in him, and to inspire more faith in his followers. It culminates on the full moon, the fifteenth day of the lunar calendar, which is called Chotrul Duchen. Losar is traditionally celebrated for three days, during which Tibetans spend time with friends and family, eat, play games, and relax.
Losar is a special time for us as it commemorates the anniversary of FPMT founder Lama Yeshe’s parinirvana at dawn of Losar in 1984. Lama Zopa Rinpoche asks centres to offer students the opportunity to offer extensive Lama Chöpa with tsog in honour of this anniversary. Lama Zopa Rinpoche says that one generates incredible merit by offering tsog on that occasion every year. This Losar marks thirty-four years since the passing of Lama.
All fifteen days are merit-multiplying days, when the merit of virtuous actions performed on these days is multiplied by 100 million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche from the Vinaya text, Treasure of Quotations and Logic.

On this very auspicious occasion we will be performing extensive 1,001 Offerings, Pujas, Sutra Reading and Teaching led by Venerable Tenzin Legtsok

February 18th, Sunday: 10 AM - 1 PM – 'The Essence of the Buddha's Teachings' (Part II) by Venerable Tenzin Legtsok

The 'Graduated Path to Enlightenment' or Lamrim genre presents all of the teachings of Buddha in a concise, practical manner. The teachings will follow Yeshe Tsondru's-'The Essential Nectar' which is a short Lamrim text recommended as a guide to daily practice. Our Venerable Teacher will unlock its precious meaning; enabling the students to apply its insights for deep transformation.

Born and raised in Virginia, Venerable Tenzin Legtsok entered Sera Je Monastic University in Bylakuppe (Karnataka State) in the year 2004. Venerable Legtsok is a senior Teacher at CKSL, and is currently pursuing his Geshe degree (PhD in Buddhist Philosophy).

Pujas Recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche for Success and Realizations

All the first fifteen days (February 16th to March 1st) of Losar are merit-multiplying days, when the merit of virtuous actions performed on these days is multiplied by 100 million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche from the Vinaya text, Treasure of Quotations and Logic.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has advised CKSL to sponsor and arrange pujas at major monasteries and nunneries in India and Nepal. Namely, the recitation of the Kangyur (the collection of all 108 volumes of Buddhist Sutras) by the nuns and monks of Kopan, and a recitation of 100,000 Praises to Twenty-one Taras.

Just as we take medicine to recover from an illness, participation in pujas can help to remove our obstacles or negative conditions along path, which prevent us from achieving our worldly and spiritual goals. Removing these obstacles will help us to achieve happiness and good fortune in all our activities. Participating in pujas will also have a positive influence on the spread of Dharma and increases conducive conditions for a practitioner’s development on the paths to liberation and enlightenment.
Because of the tremendous benefits to those who participate in such virtuous activities, we are offering the opportunity to our members, friends and supporters to contribute towards the sponsoring of these pujas.
To arrange the pujas that Rinpoche advised, the total budget is Rs. 600,000. This will go to pay for bread and tea for the Sangha members attending the puja, as well as a modest money offering.
For this event, we are encouraging broad participation from everyone, so please consider contributing even Rs. 500, Rs. 1,000, Rs. 5,000 or any amount. No amount is too small or too large. Donations may be made on behalf of individuals, families, businesses and those who have passed away. Extensive dedications will be read out at the monastic assemblies.
