Prayer Flags - Losar Pujas

Prayer Flags and Streamed Losar Day Pujas  

 

Lake Born Vajra Tsokye Thuk Thik Thangka

 

Dear Dharma Friends,
 
As you may know, we have cancelled our annual Vajrakilaya Gutor Losar retreat this year out of our overwhelming sadness and respect for our Lord of Refuge Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa Rinpoche’s parinirvana. We are using this time to do Vajrasattva practice and receive the blessings of Rinpoche's wisdom mind.
 
We will not have a party on Losar Day (March 3), but we will do Tsokye T'huk T'hik and Orgyen Khandro Norlha pujas as we do each year. We will do this in order to connect to the transcendent energy of these profound Dudjom Tersar practices, for which Rinpoche most kindly gave us empowerments in 2018. (The pujas will be streamed live with the online text links.)
 
We will also be raising Dudjom prayer flags, as we do every year. During this tragic time for so many, it is even more important to raise life force (lung-ta) and to accumulate virtue for everyone living, for those who have passed, for those beings suffering in every realm, and for practitioners, to purify our path so we can know the true meaning of meditation.
 
We will raise the flags with heartfelt aspirations and dedications for the long life of our lamas and for our lamas’ swift rebirths, especially that of our Lord Protector, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche.
 
Flags are traditionally raised on Losar Day, but this year we will raise them on *Tuesday, March 8. Tuesdays were Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche Sangye Pema Shepa’s la-za, the day of the week recognized as a special connection to his elemental energy. This is for us to remember his most precious life force that we were so privileged to share, and to make aspirations that he returns to us very soon.
 
With love,
Lama Sonam

 

*Due to a production/shipping issue, we will not be raising the prayer flags on Tuesday, March 8. Lama Sonam Rinpoche asked us to let everyone know that they will be raised on another auspicious Lunar New Year day, and we will let everyone know as soon as possible. Names are still being accepted for sponsorship.

Prayer flags "raise life force (lung-ta), accumulate virtue for everyone living, for those who have passed, for those beings suffering in every realm, and for practitioners, to purify our path so we can know the true meaning of meditation.Prayer flags are for the enhancement of health, merit, all desirable qualities, and the long life and swift rebirth of our sublime lamas." Lama Sonam Rinpoche 

 

The prayer flags at Pema Osel Ling are handmade for us each year and contain prayers from HH Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorje Rinpoche.

 

It is traditional to put names on prayer flags to help clear obstacles for the coming year. We will put yours and/or a loved ones’ name(s) on our prayer flags and will send a link to a dedication e-card that you can send to your loved one(s) about the meaning of prayer flags and to let them know that you have sponsored a flag in their honor. 

 

Funds raised above the costs of the prayer flags will go to support our pujas and shrine room.

 

**If using Paypal, please enter dedication names in the space below. If you run out of room for names, or are paying by check, send names to offerings@vajrayana.org.
