Vajra Sarasvati Empowerment and TeachingAccording to Mipham Rinpoche
May 28‰ÛÒ30, 2016 ‰ۢ Padma Samye Ling, NY
Sarasvati (Yang Chenmo) embodies the wisdom and compassion of all the buddhas. In particular, she is a buddha of wisdom, beauty, art, and music. Mipham Rinpoche invokes Sarasvati in his book, The Blazing Lights of the Sun and Moon:
In the expansive lotus-garden of speech of all the conquerors,
With 100,000 melodious blooms of holy Dharma,
You are a singing swan that shines as bright as moonlight,
May you now enjoy the vast lake of my mind.
Weekend activities will include raising new prayer flags around all of Padma Samye Ling, as well as performing smoke offering ceremonies with Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche.
