Dear Bodhivastu Community Members and Friends,
 
We would like to remind you of several major events planned for this spring up at our Big Indian center.  You will need to sign up for these and make your arrangements very soon as facilities are limited.
 
From tomorrow, April 18th to the 22nd volunteers will be pitching in a hand to get the center ready for our main events and continued teaching and retreat schedule for this spring and summer.  Those able and ready to pitch in and lend a hand cleaning up, scraping, painting, sanding, gardening, etc. should please contact info@bodhivastu.org and let us know which days you wish to go up so that we can plan for you.
Please bring food items, tent, warm clothes and sleeping bags.
 
May 18th
Buddha Jayanti all day special program with The Venerable Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche and Lama Rangbar Nyima Ozer
This action filled day will start with an extensive morning Riwo Sang Chod practice and Naga Offering Ceremony.
Propitiating and making pure offerings to the Nagas helps all beings accumulate merit and wisdom while sowing the seeds for well-being, prosperity and for the purposes of reducing many types of illnesses.  Those participating in this ritual should shower that morning if at all possible or the night before and should not eat meat or eggs for breakfast.
This will be followed by A brief Shakyamuni Tsok Puja in the afternoon session after lunch. (see tsok offerings below)
 
Please remember to bring your own cushions, umbrellas and blankets or warm dress just in case it is cold or drizzles.

We will then all gather in the late afternoon early evening around 6:00 PM to write down our prayers onto paper lanterns we will light and launch onto the pond.  This will be together with a special "Mani" Flute concert by The Venerable Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche at the pond side.
 
May 19th
