Losar Tibetan New Year) 2011: Year of the Metal Rabbit
We invite you to join Venerable Lama Norlha Rinpoche and the Sangha of KTC to our nine day Losar (Tibetan New Year) chanting activities and celebration. There are many ways to participate in these auspicious activities. During all of these dates, the shrine room is open to the public. Everyone is welcome to join us for any amount of time.
Additionally, it is possible to make a variety of donations in the name of loved ones, both living and deceased. Some of the donation items include the sponsorship of the chanting, meals, fire offering ceremonies, and butterlamps. You may donate any amount and provide us with the names for dedication. As we are not able to check email during chanting events, please send your prayer request and sponsorship information 48 hours before the first day of chanting to guarantee that we receive it in time to announce your prayer. If you are not able to do that, please leave a short but clear message of your prayer on 845-297-2500 and we will do our best to have your prayer announced.
The dates of the chanting practices are listed below. To confirm starting times for chanting, please call close to each event (845-297-2500).
