Yuthok Nyingthig Ganapuja

Medicine Buddha Wednesdays

This week's group practice falls falls on Medicine Buddha Day, the eighth day of the lunar calendar.

The Yuthok Nyingthik (Tib. གཡུ་ཐོག་སྙིང་ཐིག་) is a complete cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice, beginning with the preliminary practices and progressing through the highest spiritual methods.

The Ganapuja (Tib. ཚོགས་མཆོད་ “tsok chöd”) feast offering is a practice of the mindful enjoyment of the sense pleasures that is held regularly on Medicine Buddha Day, the eighth day of the Tibetan lunar month. This practice offers a powerful method for purifying obscurations and accumulating merit, and provides an opportunity for us to gather to share prayers, food, and company. Before the puja, we will do a short Medicine Buddha healing practice, received from Dr. Nida Chenagtsang. This meditation is a simple method for healing self and others. Please bring offerings of food, drink, and/or flowers for the feast.

Practice is held at private residence in inner SE Portland. Please contact us for directions.
