Offering to the Spiritual Guide (OSG)

LLTD 2 with offerings and backgroundThe Offering to the Spiritual Guide puja is held twice a month on the 10th and the 25th (duration: 2 hours).

October 25 is Je Tsongkhapa Day, when we remember the great kindness of Je Tsongkhapa.

The principal Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa is Offering to the Spiritual Guide. In Kadampa Buddhism, Guru Yoga is practiced in association with Je Tsongkhapa, an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.

Guru yoga is a special method for receiving the blessings of our Spiritual Guide. Here, the term ‘Guru’ does not imply that our Spiritual Guide should be Indian. Our Spiritual Guide is any spiritual Teacher who sincerely leads us into spiritual paths by giving correct instructions.

By relying upon Je Tsongkhapa our compassion, wisdom and spiritual power naturally increase. This practice includes a tsog offering so please bring a vegetarian food offering with you if you wish.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

Please check our online calendar for the puja times.
