What to bring: For the feast, have ready a plate of food (meat, vegetarian, gluten-free, etc…whatever you eat…plus anything else, e.g. vegetables, fruit, cake, cookies, candy, etc.) The food should be arranged nicely on a plate. Also, something to drink, alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
The main offerings for the feast will be done by the shrine attendant (choppön) to the shrine we will be using for all of us. But you should make a “leftover offering” of a bit of food on a small plate before you eat…after the entire feast, you can take that outside and leave in a clean place.
We will screen the sadhana text and all the other chants we will be reciting. But if you want to read from your own copies, please have them on hand. The other chants will be the Seven-Line Supplication to Padmākara, the Supplication to the Takpo Kagyus, the Supplication to the Longchen Nyingthik Lineage, the Ekajati protector chant, the Concluding Request to the Protectors, Supplication to Padmasambhava, Fulfilling the Aspirations of the Vidyadhara the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and the two dedications of merit.
*** The Sadhana of Mahamudra** is a Buddhist liturgical practice composed by Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche The Sadhana is a complete and profound Vajrayana practice, particularly directed toward revitalizing spiritual inspiration and insight in these times of global materialism and sectarian strife. The feast, a traditional component of Vajrayana practices, incorporates eating and drinking as a celebration and offering practice within the context of the sadhana, and joins one’s senses with the awareness created by the sadhana practice.
