The Padmasambhava Meditation Center is a non-profit organization founded and directed by H.E. Chhoje Rinpoche. The center is dedicated to the study and practice of meditation in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Rinpoche’s teachings focus on the realization of wisdom and compassion through meditation. With his invaluable guidance, students receive instruction specifically tailored to their needs.
AUGUST 21ST SOLAR ECLIPSE ACTIVITIES
Monday, August 21st, there is a very powerful solar eclipse that will happen over America. Rinpoche has encouraged us to do as much practice as possible during the eclipse as merit is multiplied 100 million times. The eclipse begins at 9:46am. The peak is at 12:25pm. It finishes at 3:04pm. This is Mountain Time Zone. We will be doing practice at the Denver Center during this time, but if you are at work or are not in Denver, Rinpoche recommends doing whatever practice you can during this time. Mantra recitation, Riwo Sang Chod and Tsok are excellent to do if possible. Also, saying the Samantrabhadra Aspiration Prayer is great.
