Losar - Tibetan New Year - Morning Prayers
Time & Location
About the Event
You are invited to celebrate Tibetan New Year (Losar) “Year of the Metal Ox”, with Lama Tendar at the Medicine Buddha Centre.
In Tibetan Buddhist tradition, during Losar, it is customary to visit the Temple, pay homage to Buddha, to Lama, to your Teachers; make offerings to our teachers in gratitude for teaching us the path to enlightenment, request their blessings, teachings and personal advice.
This is a great opportunity for our Sangha to accumulate pure merit by making prostrations, offerings, requesting, beseeching, rejoicing and dedicating on the occasion of Losar.
2020 was a particularly challenging year for the whole international community. It is important as a Sangha, to focus our prayers in cultivating positive healing energy to heal the world and dedicate our prayers for World Peace. This is the time to let go of the old and bring in new, fresh energy for the New Year.
FRIDAY 12th FEBRUARY
Join Lama Tendar with early morning meditation practice on the first day of Tibetan New Year when Lama Tendar will be doing his personal practice of Yamantaka and Guru Yoga and pay homage to Buddha and to all the Lineage Masters. On New Year’s Day, it is considered to be very auspicious to be able to join monks while they do Prayers to welcome in the New Year and receive their blessings. You are welcome to come along and meditate while Lama Tendar does his prayers.
Time: 6am If you are unable to come to the Centre, you can also join in via Zoom.
There will be a Special Meditation on Friday night to celebrate Losar. We will be doing lots of prayers and chanting and mantra recitation for the New Year. (available on Zoom)
