Refuge Vow Ceremony with Lama Palden

June 20 @ 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Lama Palden will be giving the formal refuge vow ceremony online for those who would like to take the formal refuge vow for the first time, for those who would like to renew their vow, and all who would like to witness the ceremony. The Refuge Ceremony goes back to the time of the Buddha. It is a ceremony where we formally make a vow to turn our body, speech and mind towards awakening, towards our true nature or Buddha Nature.

Lama Drupgyu and Lama Döndrup will lead a 5-day online retreat exploring the different dimensions of Mahamudra. Mahamudra is a practice that leads one to the experience of the open, luminous, pure nature of mind. But though its always with us, it can be a challenge to experience. Join Lama Drupgyu and Lama Döndrup as they presentsan invaluable systematic approach that skillfully navigates the practitioner beyond these challenges and into a direct experience of awakened mind

Lama Palden will be giving the Medicine Buddha empowerment online. Medicine Buddha is the embodiment of awakened healing energy. The Medicine Buddha empowerment is a powerful blessing for healing, dispelling sickness, and for awakening the innate healing wisdom that lies within every individual. All are welcome to attend the empowerment, but having taken formal refuge is a requirement. Lama Palden will give refuge on Saturday, June 20th.
