During the time of the Awakened One Tonpa Shenrab, the great Master Hazha Sangwa Dodü requested Tonpa Shenrab to offer a prosperity ritual for the benefit of all sentient beings. In response to his request, Tonpa Shenrab transmitted the Ritual for Summoning and Securing the Elements of Prosperity – Ser Öd Yang Kyab. We all have this precious human life and the precious opportunity to practice, however, many of us face adversities such as health issues, natural disasters, economic struggles, and obstacles to our lifeforce. These adversities hinder the accomplishment of our dreams and interrupt our attempts to live peacefully.

The benefit of this ritual practice is to nurture and secure the elements and forces of prosperity. This will support our longevity and physical health and strengthen our prosperity of wealth and enjoyment.

In this weekend workshop, Tempa Lama and Geshe Chembel Gurung will explain the essence of the Ritual for Summoning and Securing the Elements of Prosperity and its benefits. They will also perform the complete ritual for the benefit of the community.

Participants will be emailed the Zoom link a day before the teaching on Friday, October 14.
