14 May Smoke Puja
Burning plants as an offering + purification ritual has been in practice for millennia, across every culture. The burning of special plants releases the vibrational energy of their qualities, and the smoke is used as offering, carrying prayers and aspirations into the universe. The benefits of performing a smoke offering ritual are numerous ~ generating harmony + peace, healing + protecting physical/spiritual bodies, purifying negative karma + other obstacles, creating sacred space, clearing disruptive energies and honoring our protectors, ancestors + loved ones.
The smoke puja is to be conducted by our fellow lamas and Choeze Kuchen Rinpoche.
