Join the Jamyang community as we celebrate the festive season with a shared lunch of warming soup and bread, followed by a Chenrezig Puja.
Chenrezig—also known as Avalokiteshvara—is one of the most beloved deities of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. With 1000 arms, he reaches out to care for all living beings, showing us that pure compassion is limitless. Reciting Chenrezig’s mantra, om mani padme hum, helps to calm our minds and reminds us to extend our compassion to others.
Pujas are chanted prayer ceremonies which show respect and devotion. You can join in the prayers and chanting from the sadhana (spiritual text) or simply sit, listen and enjoy the blessings. Please feel free to bring offerings (for example incense, fruit, flowers, biscuits) for the shrine.
All welcome, community members old and new, Buddhists and non-Buddhists. Donations welcome.
