This beautiful sadhana, Accumulating Wisdom and Merit Through the Mandala of Arya Tara, was discovered by Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa and adapted by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.
All practices will be conducted on a regular and ongoing basis.
Since this is a Kriya Yoga practice, please do not consume any meat, alcohol, onions or garlic on the day of the practice. It is also a good idea to bathe beforehand if possible.
We have updated the puja liturgy with several additions, including shrine setup and torma examples, and several new supplications that the monks of the New Labrang in Bir often chant when doing this puja.
Ushnisha Vijaya is the manifestation of all the merit contained within the Buddha’s topknot, which is also represented as the wisdom of non-duality. For this practice, we will make offerings, recite the dharani and circumambulate the mandala together in order to accumulate merit for the benefit of all sentient beings.
Khyentse Foundation Introduces the Triratna Anusmṛti Sādhanā (the sadhana of The Recollection of the Noble Three Jewels) an ongoing online group practice initiated by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche. “As we emerge from the pandemic, we will constantly face a range of emotions, many of which we experience as negative — fear, loss of purpose, loss of confidence, lack of clarity, insecurity, aggression, failure, clinging, and so many more. By practicing this sadhana, we can create a common space for a disciplined group practice where people from diverse backgrounds connect in the endeavor of calming our internal turmoil. “ You can integrate this beautiful sadhana into your daily lives as a means to systematically and sincerely manage and train your minds. Everyone is welcome to join.
