From the 1st to 8th of June the grand Chakrasamvara puja wil be performed.
The Chakrasamvara Tantra is considered to be one of the highest practices in Vajrayana, and is also the main practice of Maha Siddha Tilopa. All monastic Sangha are requested to bring the required text and ritual equipments to participate in the puja.
We would also like to welcome all lay practitioners at this spiritual event. However, we apologize in advance for not being able to accommodate lay devotees in KIBI as many monks and nuns will participate at the function and the accommodation in KIBI is limited. We are happy in assisting you to find a hotel nearby.
