Preparing For A Buddhist Ritual - Follow Live Online!On Tue, 12 January, 2016 - 16:39
This is an invitation from Stanashraddha and Satyalila at Adhisthana to join them in spirit for a special ritual that will take place there this evening, Tuesday January 12th at 7pm GMT/2pm EST.
You can watch a live stream on Periscope of proceedings! On site participating in the ritual will be members of the Adhisthana communities and a small group who are on a Complete Works working retreat. It will be led by Saddhanandi, Chair of Adhisthana.
To join the live stream, simply visit The Buddhist Centre’s Twitter page. When the event is about to begin, we’ll post the link there. Just click the link and you’ll have a choice to watch live in your browser, in your Twitter app or on Periscope. If you’re a Periscope user you’ll also be able to make comments on the stream as the event progresses!
Please keep in mind that this will be a bit of an experiment, so if there are some technical issues we appreciate your patience - but it’s a great chance to take part in the live event wherever you are in the world. And the video recording will be available for some time after the event as well if you miss it.
This ritual is to consecrate and dedicate a two-foot tall Manjusri rupa that will be especially associated with Urgyen Sangharakshita’s Complete Works. (Eventually the rupa will sit on a shrine in the Library, there amongst the precious collection of Bhante’s rupas, thangkas, and Dharma and other books at the heart of Adhisthana.) During the ritual, which will take place in the Library, various objects will be placed inside the rupa, after which the rupa will be sealed up.
