New Year Vajrasattva Purification Practice
December 31, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 11:59 pm
Come and start the New Year with a clean slate by confessing and purifying any negative karma accumulated through transgressions of body, speech and mind over the past year through the powerful Vajrasattva (Dorje Sempa) practice. This event will be held in-person at the Manjushri Dharma Center on Saturday, December 31 (12/31/22) from 7:00PM to 12:00AM midnight.
This special event will consist of teachings by Khenpo Karten Rinpoche on the Vajrasattva practice, an explanation of the meaning of the mantra and on the four opponent powers (tob shi) that we perform to purify our negative thoughts, speech and actions. After a short break, we will then accumulate recitations of the Vajrasattva Mantra until Midnight, followed by welcoming in the New Year with tea and treats. For those who would like to join virtually on Zoom, please join us:
This is a very powerful practice, not to be missed. Please wear white clothing or adornments, and feel free to bring some food or refreshments to welcome in the new year.
