Offering to the Spiritual Guide

Offering to the Spiritual Guide

Twice a month on the 10th & 25th we make special prayers for the long life of our precious Spiritual Guide Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. We have gained so much benefit in our lives from his teachings, his books, the prayers and from the Dharma centres he has established throughout the world. We make prayers so that he may continue his good work bringing peace and happiness to the people of this world. In the prayers we make requests to gain all the states of mind we need on the path to the supreme inner peace of enlightenment - permanent freedom from suffering.

 During the prayers we make offerings of food (tsog) to our Spiritual Guide. These are set out very beautifully on plates on a table in front of the shrine before the prayers start. The purpose of making food offerings is to improve our mind of giving. You are welcome to bring your own offerings.

After the prayers some food is set aside to give to others and then we share the rest over a drink & chat. This is an opportunity for people attending classes to spend relaxed time with each other, share experiences of applying Buddha’s teachings in busy daily life,  and to go home renewed, inspired and refreshed.
