Losar at NPDC in New York City

Starting at about 10:00AM we started welcoming New Year of Fire Dog with 3 recitations of 8 Noble Auspicious Ones and Guru Rinpoche Vajra Seven Line Prayer. Following with The Blessing Treasure, A Liturgy of the Buddha by Ju Mipham Rinpoche, Riwo Sangcho -the smoke offering. After which we all offered katas to the image of Kyabje Penor Rinpoche. Then in good cheer we had New Year’s tea and rice. After a short break we went on with Shower of Blessings a Tsog offering. Khenpo Tenzin Norgey and Lama Wangchuk lead all the ceremonies and chants.

Khenpo Norgey out of great kindness answered many questions all in very good spirits, encouraging us in our practice, without his presence we are unlikely to have had such a successful event as we did.

After completing all the ceremonies many people went to see a Thangka exhibit 2 blocks away and had a Tea break at a local Tea House on Mott Street.
