August 2017


Dear Friends in the Dharma,

Because Honora and I will be spending as much time as possible in personal practice, we will be offering fewer public practices at Boulder Valley Ngakpa House in August and we will also be starting our tshogs at 4 PM instead of 6:30 PM. Both Guru and Dakini tshogs this month will be Cho-kyi Go-cha's Saraswati sadhana-cum-tshog.

Wednesday, Aug. 2 is the 10th day of the sixth Tibetan lunar month. We will be offering tshog at 4 PM. Please RSVP if you intend to come and please bring an easily divisible finger-food offering.

Monday, Aug. 7, we will do Naga puja at 6:30 PM. This is also the Full Moon.

Thursday, Aug. 17 is the 25th day of the lunar month and we will likewise offer tshog at 4 PM. Again, please RSVP if you are coming and please bring a food offering.

From Aug. 20-28, we will be holding a Yuthok Nyingthig Outer Guru Yoga retreat. During this time, on Monday, Aug. 21, there will be a total eclipse. Please say Samantrabhadra's Aspiration Prayer if possible. On Tuesday, Aug. 22, it is an exceptionally good day for Naga puja and/or Naga sang. If you know how to do either of these, please do on this day.

Thursday, Aug. 31 is the 10th day of the seventh Tibetan lunar month and we will offer tshog at 4 PM.
