4-10 July 2022 (7 days)
Led by Lama Rinchen.
We are going to perform Dorje Phagmo long puja (Dorje Phagmo Drubtab), based on the sand mandala and with a fire puja at the end.
To take active part in the practice, the Dorje Phagmo empowerment is required. It is possible, though, to be in the temple during sessions and do own practice or recite favourite prayers or mantras. You can also cover the costs of participation or meals of the participants or make a donation for the materials we need during the rituals (rice for the offering bowls, oats for tormas, butter for ornaments, tealights, incense, tsok). By engaging in all these activities we accumulate merit and receive the same blessing of Dorje Phagmo as those who take active part in the practice.
Dorje Phagmo, known also as Vajrayogini, is a main meditative deity in the Karma Kamtsang tradition. She was a secret yidam of great forefathers of the Kagyu lineage: Marpa, Milarepa and Gampopa, as well as successive Karmapas. For thirteen generations the teachings about her were transmitted by a master only to one selected disciple. Presently it is the most frequently used Yidam practice in our tradition. It is said that the sadhana is a gate leading both into the mahamudra practice and the Six Dharmas of Naropa, and that its blessing especially quickly brings to insight.
4th of July at 9:00 a.m. (Monday) – Dorje Phagmo sachok (the ritual of consecrating the ground and beginning the sand mandala);
5th - 6th of July (Tuesday - Wednesday) – shortened Dorje Phagmo puja in the morning (only dak kye), then making the sand mandala (only those who take part in practice can make the mandala);
7th - 9th of July (Thursday - Saturday) – 3-day Dorje Phagmo drubpa;
10th July (Sunday) – Dorje Phagmo fire puja (jinsek) and throwing the sand from the mandala into the river.
Registration deadline (and prepayment for meals) – till the 28th of June.
