On the 11th of February, in evening, we started an intensive week-long Mahakala practice which, in accordance with many-centuries long tradition of the Kagyu Lineage is performed before Losar - Tibetan New Year.
Our Polish lamas, guided by Lama Mingyur Sonam, have prepared a set of tormas for the puja. Pictures from Gutor you can see below.
On this auspicious occasion of Losar we have officially reached the goal of accumulating 100.000.000 Tara Mantras according to Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's wishes. May by this merit all beings be free from all fear and suffering especially calamities, war and epidemics. May all of Dorje Chang Tenga Rinpoche's wishes be fulfilled and may we soon be blessed with Kyabje Rinpoche's swift return.
