New Year Vajrasattva Fire Puja, NYC

Post by kirtu » Tue Dec 28, 2010 1:45 pm

The Annual New Year's morning Vajrasattva Fire Puja & afternoon Vajrakilaya Practice led by Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche

December 31, 2010 – January 2, 2011
Location: 222 Bowery, New York City
December 31, January 1, and January 2nd (Fri, Sat, and Sun)

Led by Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche:

-Morning Vajrasattva fire puja practice: 9am to 12 noon
-Afternoon Vajrakilaya and Dharmapala practice with tsok: 2pm to 5pm

Let us begin the new year's practice with Vajrasattva and Vajrakilaya!

The ceremony of the Jin Sek is one of the rarest ways to begin the new year. For twenty-one years, this is one of the very special practices that we have been able to do in New York City through the open kindness of John Giorno.

Jin Sek is considered a very powerful skilful means practice of the Vajrayana as fire is one of the five powerful elements. This Vajrasattva practice mainly focuses on pacifying negativities and obstacles while increasing prosperity, joy, longevity, peace, and realization.

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 the Buddha nature. Daily practice of Vajrakilaya is suggested as it is very powerful. Practice on special occasions is also very beneficial.

Suggested donation:

PBC Members: $78 for attending three days, or $38/day.
Non-Members: $98 for attending three days, or $51/day.

No pre-registration is required for this event.
(This is true but the event is packed especially the mornings and I have always found it a little difficult to get into the building if you are late - there are two buttons and only one of them works for the fire puja in the morning).

Everyone is encouraged to bring fresh, unopened fire puja offerings everyday for the morning fire puja practice. Possible offerings include: dry peas, beans, rice, grains, oatmeal, honey, molasses, sugar, kusha grass, wheat, spices, cut wood for fire, plain yogurt, black sesame seeds, etc.

Please also feel free to bring fresh, unopened tsok food offering everyday for the afternoon practice session.

If you have any questions please call: 607-865-8068, or email:
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
