Vima Ladrup tsok (SI Australia)
Sunday February 5, 2023 11 am – 2.30 pm AEDT
Everyone is welcome to attend, although only those who have received the empowerment may have the liturgy.
The Tibetan word for this practice is tsok, which means ‘gathering’ and refers to the gathering of practitioners, the gathering of offerings, the gathering of mandala deities, and the gathering of merit and wisdom. To attend this kind of practice it is helpful, but not essential, to have some familiarity with Vajrayana theory and practice.
This session with be an extended practice with Confession and Fulfillment
Requirements: Vima Ladrup – The Guru Sadhana of Vimalamitra feast practice may be joined by anyone who has received the empowerment. Those without the empowerment are still welcome to join the practice to sit and listen, much as one might join a puja being conducted in a monastery, or if attending in person, read a borrowed liturgy for the duration of the practice. The only requirement in this case is to have faith and respect towards Vimalamitra and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. However, in accordance with Rinpoche’s wishes, you won’t be able to access the resources page, download or keep a liturgy until the empowerment has been received.
