Khyentse Foundation and Siddhartha’s Intent invite you to join an all-day celebration and worldwide Zabtik Drolma (Green Tara) puja practice on June 18 for the long life of our teachers and the long life of the dharma.
The SI community will host five individual pujas throughout the day. Each puja will last approximately 2 hours and will be available on both Zoom and YouTube.
We are pleased to offer the debut of a new melody for “Praises to the 21 Taras” together with a new adaptation of the English and Chinese sadhana, both composed and arranged under the guidance and direction of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. We hope to have the privilege of Rinpoche’s company during one or more of the pujas.
Additionally, we are happy to announce that preparations are underway to offer regular online Tara Puja practices in the future.
What I want you to do is supplicate. Supplication, prayer, is important. Prayer is meditation. Prayer is shamatha. Prayer is vipassana. Prayer is so important.
May the non-virtuous thoughts and actions never come and even if they come, please let them not stay long. Let them be short. And may my life be long, healthy, and prosperous. May my meditation have realization and experience.
May this earth be peaceful and harmonious. May this country be peaceful and harmonious and may the world be peaceful and harmonious. May the leaders who actually lead the nations do so according to the law of cause and condition. Whatever they plan, may they be successful. And those who are devoted to dharma, may they live long, may they be prosperous. May war and famine dissolve or be pacified. May the study and the practice of the dharma prevail. May the holders of the dharma, the gurus, live long. And may they be free from obstacles. And may the dharma of the Buddha remain on this earth.
So these are what you should be praying for.
