Join us to celebrate Losar (Tibetan New Year) along with this once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of the ceremony to infuse the Life Force Stick for the Stupa. This program is open for DKC sangha, family and friends. Because all of you are a part of manifesting the monastery and the stupa, Drupon Samten would like all of you to be a part of this wish-fulling ceremony which is your opportunity to hold the stick and make a once in a life time aspiration prayer. We will also have Guru Yoga and Tsok offering. We will have a potluck lunch. Please bring something for the Tsok and the potluck lunch. We will also have a Silent Auction to help with our fundraising. Suggested donation is $20.
