The Ripa Ladrang Foundation holds a group practice meeting once a month. The practice generally consists of opening prayers, a main practice, Gesar and Taksham Protector practices, Tsog offering, and closing prayers. Our main practices include Gesar Lord of Dralas, Guru Rinpoche, Medicine Buddha, and Chenrezig. The practices are said in Tibetan (phonetics) and English and the practice time lasts about three hours.
The meetings are led by the regional sangha secretaries and take place at the homes of practitioners. If you are unfamiliar with our practices, we can pair you with a practitioner who will guide you through the practice. You may want to bring a cushion to sit on and a mala. If you would like to participate in the Tsog offering, monetary and/or edible offerings are accepted.
If you would like to attend a group practice meeting, please contact us at least a few days ahead of time for location and cancellation information. Meetings may be cancelled or rescheduled due to inclement weather or during our annual Teaching Tour schedule.
