OFFERING TO THE SPIRITUAL GUIDE Prayers
In-person and available via livestream for KMC LA members at the Member Portal
Everyone is welcome to join these special prayers. The practice of relying upon a Spiritual Guide, or ‘Guru Yoga’, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments.
In Kadampa Buddhism, Guru Yoga is practiced in association with Je Tsongkhapa, an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.
The principal Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa is Offering to the Spiritual Guide, an extensive practice usually performed at Kadampa Buddhist centers twice a month, on the 10th and 25th days.
You are invited to bring a vegetarian food offering or other offering to place on the altar.
The tsog offering is very important for renewing commitments and averting obstacles. It is a special method through which we come under the care and guidance of the Dakas and Dakinis who bestow completion stage realizations. Our wealth, merit, and great bliss will increase through this practice.
