  • This event has passed.

Join us on Sunday, 11th September 2022 for a powerful combination of two different pujas which will help you harness enlightened energy for the swift fulfilment of your wishes.

The 16 Arhats Puja invokes the blessings of this group of attained beings, who promised to remain in the world to spread the holy Dharma. The puja generates oceans of merits for our spiritual development, and for the growth of our spiritual guide’s teachings, activities and legacy.

Tara Puja (Drolchok) calls upon the most popular female Buddha in Tibet, the Goddess Green Tara, who vowed to return as a female Bodhisattva in every lifetime, to help all who invoke her to fulfil virtuous wishes and allay their fears and worries.
