Solar Eclipse, Special Prayers of Kuntuzangpo
August 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
On Saturday, August 11th, there will be a partial solar eclipse at 1:02am Pacific Standard Time, visible from northern and eastern Europe, and northern parts of North America. Such days are significant in the Tibetan tradition as “merit multiplier days,” meaning that our intentions and actions are amplified by countless millions. Practitioners are encouraged to set positive intentions and to act in accordance with love and compassion with special focus on this day. After our regular meditation practice, Rinpoche will lead us in the prayer called the Prayer of Kuntuzangpo (Tib. ཀུན་བཟང་སྨོན་ལམ་, Kunzang Mönlam) — a famous Dzogchen aspiration prayer recited especially during a solar or lunar eclipse, an earthquake or at the solstices. Join us for this very meritorious prayer practice!
