- Lama Chopa (Guru Puja), 7pmLama Zopa Rinpoche:"The purpose of life is to free all sentient beings from suffering and lead them to peerless happiness, enlightenment, the cessation of all obscurations. The happiness of all sentient beings is our responsibility. But, in order to work perfectly for all sentient beings, first we ourselves must reach enlightenment, and in order to do this we need to actualise the steps of the path to enlightenment, starting with guru devotion. All of this is contained in the practice of Lama Chopa, the Guru puja by Panchen Losang Chokyi Gyaltsen."Bring offerings of delicious, healthy food and flower to offer and share,Or just bring yourself!Chanting the Names of ManjushriArya-mañjushri- nama-samgitiafter Guru Puja, about 8.30pmWe just had the good fortune to receive the oral transmission of Chanting the Names of Manjushri from Lama Zopa Rinpoche, which helps to make our recitation more powerful and effective.
