Three Nights of Protector Chants

Wednesday, 14 February, 5:30pm – 6:30pm

The period of transition around the end of one lunar year and the beginning of the new year is said to be a time of particular vulnerability to negative influences. Therefore, at this time we supplicate the dharma protectors and make offerings to them in order to purify any remaining negativity from the past year, to grant us their protection in the present, and to clear away obstacles in the coming year.

You are invited and encouraged to come together to supplicate the protectors on one, two, or all three nights. The atmosphere is charged with their fierce compassionate activity!

Now is the time to make a fresh start — Renew your commitment to the Three Jewels. Make aspirations to open your hearts and minds

Let’s come together bright and early to celebrate the new beginnings and the opportunity to “refresh and renew” our Buddhist path together and our journey through the world around us.

On this day in particular we remember our precious teachers with gratitude through making monetary offerings in appreciation and support of their continued activity.

The day begins with a lhasang (smoke offering), followed by chants of praise, auspiciousness, and aspiration. A breakfast will be provided by Nalandabodhi Boulder.

Hope to see you at Odantapuri bright and early to rejoice in our good fortune and start the new year with positive energy and aspirations.
