ShambhalaCenter, Los Angeles, CA – The Ripa Ladrang Foundation and Shambhala Center of Los Angeles will be hosting His Eminence for a Healing Ceremony.  Vajrasattva is one of the most important methods for purification and healing in Buddhist practice.  Through this ceremony, we will receive the powerful blessings of Vajrasattva directly from the Vajra Master and, to the extent that we can have faith and an open heart, we can realize numerous benefits through our participation.  This rare opportunity is offered with compassion and loving kindness and is open to all.

Purchase, NY - We are fortunate, once again this year, to be holding a Gesar Enrichment Wealth Puja in the New York area. Almost every year, for the past 10 years, His Eminence has performed this Gesar Enrichment Wealth Puja.  By participating in this Enrichment Wealth Puja, one can increase one’s own (as well as others) merit, life-force, windhorse, authentic presence, health and wealth of all kinds, including physical wealth as well as that most precious of all treasures – pure Dharma.  This practice of enrichment is a prominent activity in the Gesar tradition and is performed with compassion and generosity directed at creating as much benefit as possible for every being, without exception.  For this event, you can participate from afar.
