Blessing of the Waters
December 21, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm| Free
Khenpo Karten Rinpoche will offer a Water Blessing Ceremony on the occasion of the Winter Solstice, Wednesday, December 21, 2016, from 5:00pm-5:30pm at Lovers Point beach in Pacific Grove. The blessing will honor all the earth’s elements as Rinpoche will chant to pray for their protection. This is a powerful and poignant way to gather in community and to celebrate the shortest day of the year. Participants are invited to offer a group prayer with candles as a welcoming back of the light. Prayer copies and candles will be provided. The event is free to all. Participants are encouraged to bring flower petals to contribute to this beautiful and moving ceremony. We will also gather for our regular Thargyen class later that evening from 7:00-8:00pm at the Manjushri Dharma Center.
