First Light Celebration

This year we will join KTD Monastery for their morning session (8:30-11am CST) as part of our First Light Celebration. His Holiness Karmapa has indicated that all Kagyu practitioners and activity would be greatly benefited by reciting the Vajrasattva mantra (100,000 times) and the 35 Buddha prayer (1,000 times). KTD will be doing a live broadcast over four days to facilitate this activity. Here is the schedule and the links for the YouTube broadcast, the prayers, and the mantra.

JANUARY 1ST – JANUARY 4TH 2024
Morning Session: 8:30 AM – 11 AM CST
Afternoon Session: 1 PM – 4 PM CST
