Losar – Tibetan New Year 2009

For the occasion of the Tibetan new year (25.02) elaborate practices were performed, both before and after the actual day. From the 17th-23rd of February Middle-Length Mahakala was done everyday and on the 24th a smoke offering ritual (Sang puja) was performed. All the afore mentioned practices were a means to purify the past year. We started the first day of the new year with Middle-Length Mahakala which started before sunrise. Then on the 28th another Sang puja was done and new prayer flags were hung throughout the centre. All of these practices took place both in the center as well as in the Drupkang (3 year retreat center).
We wish all of you an auspiscious new year, may all your wishes toward the benefit of beings be fulfilled.
