In ‘The Tune of Brahma’, Shakyamuni Buddha says that by offering lights “One becomes like the light of the world.” Make a butter lamp offering from your heart today.
For Winter Solstice at Tara Mandala, we gather to reflect upon what is closest to our hearts and supporting positive change in the world. An important aspect of this evening’s event is the Butter Lamp Sponsorship. We invite you to offer butter lamps and accompanying prayers for loved ones, world situations, or whatever you feel connected to.
On Wednesday evening, December 20, we host our 2017 Winter Solstice. You can still register for the evening event here, with optional overnight accomodation. During the Green Tara tsog (feast offering ceremony), we read aloud the prayers and dedications from sponsors around the world as we sit in meditation. Whether you can join Lama Tsultrim and Tara Mandala residents or you are honoring Winter Solstice somewhere else, your presence will be felt through your butter lamp offerings, prayers and dedications. Make a butter lamp offering here.
