Shower of Blessings Meditation Practice and Tsok

With Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche

February 10, 2024

 

Register for Online

Please register for only one of the formats: Online or In-Person.

For In-Person Attendance: Registration closes at 6:00pm Pacific Time on Friday, February 9th. If the available seats fill up early, there will be an option to add your name to a waiting list.


Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche will be leading a Shower of Blessings Meditation Practice and Tsok which will include teachings on the practice as well as guided meditation.

This is a particularly special day to practice together as it is also the Tibetan New Year!

In this rich and transformative form of meditation, instead of focusing on an ordinary object of our attention such as the breath, we focus on extraordinary objects by visualizing enlightened art, reciting enlightened poetry and mantras, and cultivating extraordinary attitudes. This meditation, based on the Seven-Line Prayer of Guru Rinpoche Padmasambhava, combines focusing on these enlightened objects of attention with the practice of resting in Pristine Mind.
