This year we will join our Gainesville sister KTC in support of our Spiritual Director, Lama Losang, for the First Light Ceremony from 9:00am-11:00am. A most auspicious way to start the New Year, making aspirations helps shine a light on our intentions for cultivating compassion and developing Boddhichitta.
We will celebrate over Zoom using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/6671190575. The password is Karmapa. You can access the prayers we’ll read that day here.
“Offering light, in particular, is a special door of dependent arising for quickly completing the accumulation of merit and receiving great blessings.” ~ Sutra of Arya Maitreya
