Dear Friends of Thrangu Monastery and Dharma Family,
It is hard to believe that 2016 is already coming to a close. I'm sure many of you will take this end-of-the-year opportunity to reflect on the positive accomplishments, and perhaps the less virtuous actions you performed this year, in order to resolve to make 2017 as meaningful as you can.
As the powerful Guru Rinpoche (Fire Monkey) year wanes, and the year of the Bird or Rooster approaches, Thrangu Monastery Canada will hold the following events to mark the New Year according to the Western, Chinese, and Tibetan calendars:
Sat Dec 31, 2016 @ 6:00 PM : Lamp Prayers for World Peace
Fri Jan 20 - Thurs Jan 26, 2017: 7-Day Mahakala Prayers
Sun Jan 29, 2017: Akshoybhya Empowerment with Dungse Lama Pema
Dungse Lama Pema, Khenpo Sonam, and Thrangu Monastery Canada's resident monks would like to wish all of you a very Happy Holiday season! May 2017 bring pure aspirations and joy to all beings.
