Founders Day has been established as a way to honor the legacy of our founders, Lama Chuck and Mary Stanford. As a way to say thank you to Lama Chuck and Mary, the Rime Center will be offering a White Tara puja for their long life.

White Tara, the female Buddha of longevity. Tara is a completely enlightened buddha and as a young bodhisattva she promised always to appear in the form of a female bodhisattva and goddess for the benefit of all beings and especially to protect from the eight fears. In this white form she appears specifically for the purpose of bestowing longevity.

The practice of tsok, which is primarily a practice of offering. It is not just a practice of offering however; it is also a powerful method for purifying our samaya. Sometimes it is said that the best method for purifying samaya is the fire offering, and tsok practice is the ‘inner fire offering.’ Tsok is a very rich practice with many layers of meaning, and it can be practiced on various levels.
