2018 New Years Vajrasattva & Vajrakilaya Practices with Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche

December 31, 2017 - January 1, 2018

December 31 – January 1 (Sunday and Monday)

Join Us for the 31th Annual Vajrasattva & Vajrakilaya PBC New Year’s Practice with Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche!

-Morning Vajrasattva fire puja practice: 9am to 12 noon
-Afternoon Vajrakilaya and Dharmapala practice with tsok: 2pm to 5pm

Let’s begin the New Year’s practice with Vajrasattva and Vajrakilaya! For 31 years this is one of the very special practices that we have been able to do in New York City through the open kindness of John Giorno.

This Vajrasattva fire puja practice mainly focuses on pacifying negativities and obstacles while increasing prosperity, joy, longevity, peace, and realization. It is a terma of Terdag Lingpa.

Vajrakilaya is the embodiment of all the buddhas’ activities and is one of the most famous practices of the Nyingma school. Practicing on Vajrakilaya removes our obstacles, eases the flow of Dharma activity, and reveals the Buddha nature. Daily practice of Vajrakilaya is suggested as it is very powerful. Practice on special occasions is also very beneficial.
