HELD AT KAMALASHILA TIBETAN BUDDHIST CENTRE 10 TO 13 JUNE 2022
The Shri Vajrapani Bhutadamara Retreat was held in the middle of the Saga Dawa Month. Khenpo la was joined by Lama Konchok Choephel, the Spiritual Director of the Melbourne Sakya Centre in leading a Fire Puja near the end of retreat, along with sangha members. Those in retreat and those joining outside of retreat attending, felt so fortunate to have had this opportunity. As Khenpo la and Lama la commenced the puja, the weather varied throughout with gentle rain for a short time, wild winds, and then again gentle rain at the end of the puja, Khenpo commented on how auspicious this was of a very successful puja. At the conclusion of the Shri Vajrapani Bhutadamara Retreat the next day, Khenpo la expressed once more how this was a very successful retreat, conducted in the most complete and authentic manner, with all the practice instructions and rituals including the Fire Puja assisted by Lama la. From all of the retreat sangha and locals joining in on the fire puja day we offer our heartfelt gratitude to Khenpo la and Lama la, who took such care for us all throughout. Thank you to Ani Nyidon la for cooking us such delicious and nutritious meals. Thank you to all the lovely sangha and volunteers. May any hindrance or obstacles to practice for dharma practitioners everywhere, be extinguished.
