Guru Puja - English Version
GURU PUJA - SHORTER, ENGLISH VERSION
An offering ceremony to make the mountains of merit needed to sustain a strong relationship with the guru. This is the special devotional practice of the Gelugpa tradition. Recited primarily in English, with the usual chai offering & individual dedications. This is the shorter Guru Puja performed here at LTC.
This practice is usually done twice a month on the Tibetan 10th & 25th (tsog days). In our tradition the reliance on our spiritual teacher is the foundation of every spiritual progress. In the practice we pay homage to our teacher & try to identify with his qualities. This practice contains the whole path to enlightenment & performing this puja creates a powerful potential of spiritual growth for the participants & the benefactors.
Everyone is welcome to come to the puja - it has often been a social event and community celebration. Although the practice is aimed at people with an Highest Yoga Tantra initiation (with a comitment to learn and perform this practice), it is open to all. We offer tsog, chai tea, and make special dedications during the puja.
All welcome! No need to book, just come along. By donation - suggested $10 (or $5 concession) OR an offering of food or flowers.
