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 that will go inside 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.
