Vesak Celebration: 1000 Buddhas Puja & Praises of Shakyamuni

This event is FREE and available both Online and In-person.

In celebration of the Birth, Death, and Enlightenment of Shakyamuni Buddha, we recite praises recounting the accomplishments of his incredible life. Connecting and learning from his example, we, too, can take steps to learn and practice in stages to reveal our own enlightened nature. The first step to changing the world to a more peaceful, harmonious place is to change ourselves. It is with each of the karmas we make, each cause and condition, that we plant the seeds to change ourselves and then, through our transformation, the world around us.  Shakyamuni spent years of diligent practice and effort to understand the nature of reality and reveal his own nature before he was able to teach others. Once he transformed himself, his enlightened speech and activity had the power to transform our world and continue to through this day.

In addition to the praises to the Buddha of our time, we will chant the powerful 1000 Buddha Puja to connect with all the 1000 Buddhas of this fortunate eon. Connecting with 1000 Buddhas and sharing their names creates powerful conditions for all who hear this to be reborn in a higher realm and to come into contact with the Dharma. All practices done at this time are incredibly powerful as the merit is multiplied by 100 million times.

  • Khentrul Rinpoche
    Khentrul Rinpoche
    Non-Sectarian Master of Kalachakra

    Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and spiritual director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.

    Rinpoche spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of peace and harmony (dzokden).
