Anyen Rinpoche’s Upcoming Fall 2015 Visit to Canada
Long-life Empowerment and Teachings on the Practice of Tsok
with Anyen Rinpoche
H-Om Yoga, (30 minutes west of downtown Montreal)
3187 Route Harwood, Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC J7V 8P2
Friday Nov 20: 7:30pm; Long Life Empowerment
Saturday Nov 21: 2-6pm: Teachings
Sunday Nov 22: 1:30-4:30pm: Tsok Offering
Friday evening will begin with Rinpoche bestowing a long-life empowerment of Amitayus Buddha, the "Long Life Buddha". This powerful empowerment blessing confers longevity by repairing and sealing one's lifeforce, and dispelling obstacles such as illness. This blessing can be received by anyone, regardless of age or prior experience with the dharma.
On Saturday and Sunday, Anyen Rinpoche will give us instruction in setting up and keeping a personal shrine, making offerings, and the practice of tsok, or feast offering practice.
Anyen Rinpoche has always instructed his students on the importance of the two accumulations of merit and wisdom. On the path to liberation, we need both. The best way to accumulate the necessary merit to attain Buddhahood is through the offering practice called "tsok." When we first begin practicing the dharma, tsok is a practice that helps us gather together with our dharma brothers and sisters, share a meal and create community. But as we develop as practitioners, we realize that this profound practice helps us to perfect the qualities of generosity, selflessness and purification. Join us at OKL Canada for a very special weekend with our precious lama as he gives us more in depth teaching on this essential, and wonderful, practice.
Saturday will be the main day of teachings, focusing on details of tsok practice along with instruction of how to set up and take care of the shrine. On Sunday we will receive hands on instruction, as we set up the feast offering and offer a tsok together. Of course, we will conclude by sharing a delicious feast and good company.
