UPDATED 2/23/2013: Please see the attached flyer with the complete schedule of events: PTE – announcement for March 23-24, 2013
At the request of Pema Gorap, the Director of Partners for Tibetan Education, www.partnersfortibetaneducation.org, our most kind teacher Venerable Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Losang Jampa will bestow the rare empowerment of Hayagriva, Vajrapani and wisdom Garuda on the afternoon of Saturday, March 23 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. This empowerment is most beneficial to ward off big obstacles and illnesses. The program continues after the empowerment with teachings by Rinpoche and Geshe Losang Dhargye. Attendees are invited to stay for dinner.
On Sunday March 24 from 1:30 – 3:00 pm, Geshe Losang Dhargye will lead a meditation and then give a talk on “Truth, Path, and Buddha Nature”.
The empowerment and all other events are open and free. Donations are appreciated to defray the room rental and other expenses. Any extra monies received will be used to fund Tibetan children’s language and culture programs.
The program will be held at the Vienna Community Center, 120 Cherry Street SE, Vienna, VA.
