Losar (Tibetan New Year)
Year of the Iron Ox
Friday, February 12th, 2021
6:00 PM (Mountain Time)
Losar (Tibetan New Year) is the biggest holiday in Tibet. During this time, we can take the opportunity to close out the old year and bid goodbye to all the past negativities. We also take time to welcome the new year and inviting all beneficial and auspicious things into our lives. This event is a particularly powerful time for practice. The Way of Compassion Dharma Center will be hosting a Vajrasattva event on Friday, February 12th.
In honor of this precious event, we will be hosting an online Vajrasattva practice of purification at 6 pm Mountain Time.
“Vajrasattva practice is so important generally, and especially nowadays in the world when there is not only global warming but many other problems. There are so many other dangers—of war and sicknesses, cancer, and so many people whom you know are dying. There are so many sicknesses and other conditions for dying.
This Vajrasattva practice and other purification practices are the ultimate answer, so everything in the world—what you see, every situation—tells you to practice Vajrasattva. To purify and do Vajrasattva practice is the ultimate answer, to stop the cause to be reborn in the lower realms and the immediate [result] is to have a higher rebirth, to make preparation for death and then to meet the Dharma, to meet the virtuous friend who reveals the path to enlightenment. Then to achieve ultimate happiness, to be free from samsara and to achieve enlightenment for the numberless sentient beings and to free them from the oceans of samsaric sufferings and bring them to full enlightenment.” – Lama Zopa Rinpoche
