Fire Puja (Riwo Sangchod)-In Person

10:00 am at Manjushri Dharma Center (backyard)
In Person Event, masks and social distance required
724 Forest Avenue, Pacific Grove

On Thursday, June 24th beginning at 10:00am in the backyard of the Manjushri Dharma Center (724 Forest Avenue) Khenpo Karten Rinpoche will offer the Riwo Sangchod, the Mountain Smoke Offering practice.   All attendees must wear masks and maintain social distance.

“Riwo Sangchö, The Mountain Smoke Offering’, comes from the viewpoint of Dzogchen. It is really the best practice to remove obstacles and fulfil both temporary and long-term wishes. The smoke offering is made to all wisdom beings, to the Three Jewels, the Three Roots and Dharma Protectors, and the Three Kayas. Offering to the wisdom beings helps us to accumulate merit and wisdom. This brings short-term happiness and ultimate enlightenment. We also offer to all demonic beings who are actually manifestations of our karmic debt. These karmic debtors cause obstacles of all kinds, both temporary in this life and also long-term obstacles to enlightenment. Through this offering, karmic debtors are repaid, removing all of these obstacles. This is really the best technique.” –Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
