Let us begin the new year’s practice with Vajrasattva and Vajrakilaya! The ceremony of the Jin Tsik is one of the rarest ways to begin the new year. For twenty one 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. Jin Sik is considered a very powerful skilful means practice of the Vajrayana as fire is one of the five powerful elements. This Vajrasattva practice mainly focuses on pacifying negativities and obstacles while increasing prosperity, joy, longevity, peace, and realization. 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. Transmission and instruction for both practices will be given.
