Afternoon Vajrakilaya and Dharmapala practice with tsok ceremony: 2:00–5:00pm
Let’s begin the New Year with Vajrasattva and Vajrakilaya! 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 Terdak 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 our buddha-nature.
