Khenpo Tsultrim and Drupon Phunsok will be performing a three day special Achi Puja ceremony for the removal of obstacles. They are doing this for the Tibetan Meditation Center and would like to include each of you in this special ceremony which utilizes the spiritual guidance of Achi, our dearest Dharma Protectress and the grandmother of our Drikung Kagyu lineage.

There are several ways you can share your earnest intent for the removal of obstacles:

  1. Sponsorship for The Meditation Center itself. Donations may be sent in the form of a check to Tibetan Meditation Center, 9301 Gambrill Park Road, Frederick, MD 21702.
  1. Make a list of any specific personal obstacles/concerns you have heartfelt motivation to remove and place the list in an envelope with an offering.
  1. Make lunch for Khenpo and Drupon any of the 3 days.
  1. Come to TMC and participate Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday.

We hope you are able to join us.

Dedication of one’s merit is very important. Please remember that our spiritual lives are the umbrella to our challenges in this life and the next.
