New Year’s Day First Light January 1st

New Year’s Day First Light January 1st

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: 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
