We are delighted that Ven. Robina Courtin has agreed to give a short teaching to prepare us to take the Eight Mahayana Precepts on the Day of Miracles, this Saturday, February 27 at 5:45 am.
We will then take the precepts from Lama Zopa Rinpoche via video recording.
Join us on Zoom (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87022108703?pwd=czdqb0I5cTJsZ3YzYkpOektYaEdTdz09) :
Please note: If you are taking precepts for the first time via this video recording with Lama Zopa Rinpoche, then you are agreeing to take Lama Zopa Rinpoche as your Spiritual Teacher.
For those in our international community who would like to join us on the Day of Miracles:
* If you have received precepts from a qualified teacher, then please take precepts before dawn in your time zone.
* If you have not received precepts before, then please live in the spirit of precepts from dawn your time — and feel that you are actually receiving precepts from Lama Zopa Rinpoche as we watch the video all together at 6:00 am.
After precepts, join us for a workshop on the Power of Vows (https://www.tnlsf.org/events/three-types-vows) taught by Ven. Robina. The morning session at 9:30 am will cover the first two sets of vows: Individual Liberation and Bodhisattva vows.
The afternoon session at 1pm is only for those who have taken a Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment. More information can be found here (https://www.tnlsf.org/events/three-types-vows) .
We will end this powerful day with Guru Shakyamuni Buddha practice (https://www.tnlsf.org/events/chotrul-duchen-xg5ne-2pwtz-kl6d8) led by our Geshe Sherab at 7 pm.
We look forward to practicing all together on this special merit making day!
All event times listed are Mountain Standard Time.
