Lama Tsering – 3 Nights of Teachings

Maintaining Equanimity, Integrating Dharma and Red Tara Practice

April 2017

Born in the US, Lama Tsering served as H.E.Chagdud Tulku Rinpoches translator for more than 11 years. After completing a three year retreat in 1995, she was ordained as a lama and recognized by Rinpoche as a holder of the Red Tara lineage, authorized to give teachings and empowerments. That same year she was invited to teach in Brazil; based on the enthusiasm and interest encountered there, she became a permanent resident. Her warm and humorous manner of teaching reflects her own teachers style, with a focus on cultivating compassion, training the mind, and applying the dharma in a practical way.

Fire Ceremony

Chenrezig Fire Ceremony with Ven. Karma Rinpoche

July 2016

Venerable Karma Rinpoche led a special Chenrezig Buddha of Compassion Fire Ceremony. The inspiration arising from the ceremony was dedicated to world peace and the spiritual benefit for all beings. During the fire ceremony, food and herb medicine offerings were given to the fire while Rinpoche chants and recites special prayers.

The fire ceremony purifies obstacles and negativities, and offers healing to us and our world. For any important life event, such as birth, graduation, marriage, or career, the fire ceremony blesses the participant(s) and brings support. For those going through difficult times or for loved ones who have passed, the fire ceremony offers healing and blessings.
