GREEN TARA Celebration – Sunday 19 February 2023 – 15.00 CET
To prepare for LOSAR (TIBETAN NEW YEAR) and finish the past year in an auspicious way, Rinpoche will offer prayers to Tara, the female embodiment of the wisdom of all Buddhas. The text we use is the well known “Essence of the Two Accumulations. Mandala Ritual from the Mind Treasure of the Profound Essence of Tara” or in French: “Le Coeur des Deux Accumulations, le rituel de Mandala”, extrait de “La Profonde Essence de la Liberatrice”. This ritual helps us to create merit to achieve profound peace of mind. It works towards World Peace and benefiting all beings.
The ceremony can be attended in person and will also be live streamed from our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1587421057992963
GURU RINPOCHE BIRTHDAY
We celebrate Guru Rinpoche’s Birthday by reciting “Barche Lamsel” and associated auspicious prayers.
Padmasambhava is referred to as Guru Rinpoche, meaning “precious master”, throughout East Asia. He disseminated Buddhism throughout Tibet and Bhutan and tamed the opposition of demonic forces that opposed the spread of the Buddhist religion. On the Birth Anniversary of Guru Rinpoche, there are special religious rituals performed at Buddhist temples all across the world.
We celebrate Buddha’s Birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana on Saka Dawa by reciting “The Treasury of Blessing”.
In the Samādhirāja Sūtra it is said: Those who, while walking, sitting, standing, or sleeping, recollect the moon-like Buddha, will always be in Buddha’s presence, and will attain the vast nirvāṇa. And: His pure body is the colour of gold, beautiful is the Protector of the World. Whoever visualizes him like this, practises the meditation of the bodhisattvas. In keeping with this, we should practise remembering our incomparable teacher, the Lord of Sages. (from: Treasury of Blessings by Ju Mipham Rinpoche, courtesy Lotsawa House).
SA YING TONGDRUP CHENPO – ༄༄།།ས་སྙིང་དུང་སྒྲུབ་ཆེན་པོ།།
Lama Lodoe Rinpoche invites us to start a grand accumulation of the Prayer of Sa Yi Nyingpo. The practice of Sa Yi Nyingpo puts us in contact with the essence of the Earth Element. Because of the pure altruistic vow of this great Bodhisattva, sentient beings are liberated from suffering. Health problems, financial difficulties, problems with advancement of projects and problems with growing crops will diminish, even earth quakes will be averted. Daily practice will help us to experience abundance, healing, pacification of conflicts, increase of wisdom and compassion.
WEEKLY MEDITATION, PRAYER AND MANTRAS SESSION 19.30 – 20.45 CEST
This Dharma activity is organised on Wednesday evenings, depending on current pandemic regulations. It is live streamed from our Facebook Page “Palyul Chadongri Tibet Student Page”.
Short sessions of different meditation techniques, mantra chanting, well-known profound prayers such as “Praises to the 21 Taras” and “Barche Lamsel” sung with mindfulness, guided breathing exercises from the Kalachakra Yoga System.

These approaches will help our meditation by clarifying points and removing obstacles. They also generally strengthen our physical health and mental well-being.
