Guru Rinpoche day

Guru Rinpoche 2

Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche)

Padmasabhava or “The Lotus Born” in Sanskrit is worshiped from the Tibetan Buddhists as the second enlightened Buddha. His appearing in this world was predicted by Buddha Shakyamuni himself.

Padmasabhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche (“The Precious Teacher”), introduced the Vajrayana Buddhism in Tibet in the eight century. His name is related with the foundation of the oldest school under the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism – Nyingma.

Traditionally the Guru Rinpoche Day is celebrated every month on the 10th day of the Tibetan lunar calendar. Palyul Center UK honours this day performing the Puja “Shower of Blessings” by Mipham Rinpoche and a Guru Tsog practice. These prayers help us to remove the obstacles that hinders our success, prosperity and happiness, by receiving the blessings of all Buddhas and Lineage Gurus.

For the traditional Tsog Offering if you like you can bring some fruits, sweeties, juice, etc.
