Today we will chant the very precious Lama Chopa practice together over zoom. It won’t be the same as chanting together in the shrine room, however, it will be a wonderful opportunity to go through the entire practice together. The first 3/4s of the practice is chanted slowly in Tibetan and the last 1/4 is recited in English.

If you wish, you can make offerings in your own home on your altar. If you know how to make offerings more elaborately, or according to the Lama Chopa practice, you can do that. Otherwise you can keep it simple and make any offerings large or small. Offerings are substances that are pleasing to the senses and that we like, such are flowers, incense, fruit, cookies, and so forth.

When we chant Lama Chopa together in person there are a variety of rituals that are performed by the participants. During this zoom practice, however, we will not be incorporating all the usual rituals. The main idea is to recite the practice together and meditate on the meaning. We will take a 5 minute break at the usual place, about 3/4s of the way through the practice.

This is the Lama Chopa text we will be using.
