CHENREZIG (Buddha of Compassion) SACRED SAND MANDALA Dissolution Ceremony TONIGHT! Friday, Feb 12

The solemn creation of this Buddha of Compassion Sand Mandala is offered to honor the life and enlightened intentions of recently passed Venerable Chatral Rinpoche and as a Long Life for His Holiness the Dalai Lama. There will be a special Chenrezig prayers offered daily, with mantras during all construction.
