Mamo Practice (Westside)


February 4 / 6:00 PM - February 7 / 6:00 PM

Mamo Practice will be done on the Westside these three days only. Please check the Eagle Rock listing for additional days.


EVERYONE WELCOME to participate.


During the days immediately before Shambhala Day (the Tibetan Lunar New Year), we come together to recite the Pacifying the Turmoil of the Mamos chant multiple times. It is an elaborate protector offering that pacifies the karmic causes of personal, social, and environmental chaos accumulated at the years end. By reciting this chant, we tune into the protector principle of awareness, reconnect with sacred view and go into the new year with a fresh and open outlook.


Although Pacifying the Turmoil of the Mamos is traditionally recited by vajrayana practitioners, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is inviting all practitioners to participate.


Sunday, February 10, the day just before Shambhala Day, is karmically considered a neutral day. It is a traditional time to clean and refresh one's home and shrines in preparation for the coming year.


Join in this powerful and provocative practice as we come to the end of the Year of the Water Dragon with all the global and personal obstacles that accompanied it.
