Dear Sangha and friends,
Thank you very much for your support and contribution to purchase the special Yamantaka, Guhyasamaja and Chakrasamvara statues for our Centre. These constitute the heart practice for Lama Tendar and for the Centre. Lama Tendar was able to secure these items on a recent trip to Nepal.
There is a lot of preparation involved before the statues can be placed on the altar.
Firstly, they need to be cleaned, then blessed then consecrated. The statues need prayers to go into them and each chakra needs energy. Each statue will be filled with the appropriate prayers according to the characteristics of the deity. Each chakra (crown, throat, heart etc) will be filled with prayers and mantras which maintain the energy inside the statues.
The prayers were specially sourced and purchased during Lama Tendar’s visit to Nepal. Other precious things such as medicinal herbs, precious gems, stones and jewellery can also go inside the statues. If you have any precious gems, stones or jewellery to be donated to the Centre, these can be dropped off at the Centre before Friday 9th September.
This is also a wonderful opportunity to bring your personal statues to get them filled and consecrated and / or have your sacred images and thangkas to be blessed by the monks.
All Sangha are invited to attend this very special event at the Centre and assist monks to do the filling of the statues.
DATE: 10th - 11th September
CONTRIBUTION - By donation,
