Public Teachings Open to Everyone

2022 Winter Solstice Group Practice

Winter Solstice Prayers and Practice on Wednesday, December 21, 2022, 6 PM to 7 PM (CST)

Use this Zoom link to register:

https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_et-V-bbPRzmZg9vdeY-MkA

Open to all! Let’s join together on the Winter Solstice as it is an auspicious time to read The Prayer of Samantabhadra. As the text says:

At the times of solar or lunar eclipses, during an earthquake or when the earth rumbles, at the solstices or the new year, visualize yourself as Samantabhadra and recite this prayer so that all can hear it. Thus all beings of the three realms will gradually free themselves from suffering and will finally attain buddhahood through the aspiration of that yogīn!
