His Eminence Tritsab Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsultrim will perform this special ceremony for loved ones that have passed on. Please contact Beth Ripley at Ripley.email@example.com to provide name of loved one(s) and discuss any special offering you might like to make in honor of your loved one. If you would like to have your loved one’s picture placed on the altar you’ll need to mail a picture with loved one’s name to Tibetan Meditation Center, Attn: Beth Ripley, 9301 Gambrill Park Road, Frederick, MD 21713. Otherwise, if you’d like to attach a picture of your loved one(s) to an email to Beth, the lamas will look at the picture in the email, light a candle, say the name of the person and place a candle on the altar during the Puja ceremony. If you do not have a picture, providing the name of your loved one is enough. If you plan to attend the spring retreat in person you can provide Beth with the name (and picture if you have one) onsite at TMC.

In Tibetan Buddhism, the foundational practices of the ngondro are skillful methods to train the mind and must be completed before advancing to the higher practices. The refuge practice is the first ngondro practice and involves recitations and prostrations. Drupon Phuntsok will be leading us in this simple yet very profound practice.
