postponed stand by for new dates

 

Our  community's unwavering commitment to Tibet and her people and the appreciation of the wisdom teachings of non-violence and compassion, brings this wonderful spiritual leader into our community.  The hospitality of people here, Sierra Friends of Tibet, the Jacobson family and the outpouring of love and support create the cause for Kuten-la to return for his third visit to our area. This is astonishing, really, as Kuten-la's schedule is incredibly demanding while on a short visit to the U.S. To learn more on the history of the Nechung Oracle and the Nechung Buddhist Center, please visit:  www.nechung.com

Healing for the Environment

Conditions often  ripen in our communities and environment where powerful rituals may help to eliminate any negative effects.  At the request of the Placerville Friends of Tibet, Nechung Kuten will offer an environmental healing  ceremony to help the recent tragedy of the King Fire.  Kuten la will offer a blessing to transform negative conditions into positive conditions with the intention of eliminating negative forces, increase positive forces, long life, healing, protection, blessing of the land and animals and  transformation of forces in the environment. The blessing is open to everyone. It is not necessary to practice Buddhism to receive the blessing. It is believed by Buddhists that being blessed has the potential to transmit a high degree of protection, healing, and energy to those receiving the initiation and blessing with an open heart and clear mind.

WHITE TARA HEALING INITIATIONhttp://amitabhafoundation.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/White-Tara-tsemtulku.jpg

Nechung Kuten will confer a rare, multi-dimensional White Tara Initiation in a powerful ceremony. The initiation is open to everyone. It is not necessary to practice Buddhism to receive the blessing. It is believed by Buddhists that being blessed by an initiation has the potential to transmit a high degree of protection, healing, and energy to those receiving the initiation and blessing with an open heart and clear mind.

 

The White Tara is a personification of the female aspect of the Buddha and is one of the main deities used by both Tibetan Yogis/Yoginis, and lay practitioners. She represents the qualities of compassion, long life, healing, and serenity. The main motivation for receiving this initiation is the wish to have a long life, free from illness, in order to practice compassion for the sake of all living beings. Known particularly for her swiftness, Tara is the ‘mother of liberation’, and represents the virtues of success in work and achievements. The White Tara initiation is a refuge for all sentient beings and can guide everyone to the island of blissful liberation. The practice of White Tara brings long life, subdues illness, evil spirits, and negative karma; and clears away mental obscurities and obstacles in one's life.

By Donation. $20 donation suggested however no one is ever turned away for not being able to donate. All are welcome. ALL donations go directly to Nechung Buddhist Center.

Tibetan handicrafts are available for purchase at the event. All funds raised go directly to the Nechung Buddhist Center. SFOT will offer refreshements following the initiation.
