White Tara Blessing & Celebration/Fundraising Dinner, Saturday, October 11, 2008

On Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche’s final weekend in DC this year, in celebration of the many teachings and blessings he’s given, and as a fundraiser for Guhyasamaja Center’s Building Fund.

* Come Enjoy a White Tara Blessing, delicious Tibetan and Vietnamese Cuisine, traditional Tibetan song and dance, and a silent auction. *

Khensur Rinpoche will offer a long life blessing of White Tara-the female Buddha of active compassion who grants long-life, wealth, and wisdom.  This will be Rinpoche’s last Saturday in town this year, and this blessing is open to all.
