For many years now it has been the custom in Benchen Phuntsok Ling to practice the medium length ritual of Mahakala Dorje Bernagchen during the days between Christmas and the New Year.
This year it will happen in a slightly different manner. Between Christmas and the New Year the practice is restricted to all those who already received the empowerment of Dorje Bernagchen. All the mantras which are recited will be counted. The practice will be guided by Lama Ngawang Tsultrim.
Before Losar next year (11.-15. February 2018) the recitation of the medium lenght ritual of Mahakala will happen, too. At that time the recitation is open for everyone.
It is a nice opportunity to meet again with the Benchen Sangha after the summer course.
Start Tuesday December 26, at 2.30 PM
End Saturday December 30, at noon
The recitation will be concluded with the practice of the Riwo Sangchö ritual.
