Mamo Chants

January 27th—February 3rd

Date details +

    As the Year of the Earth Dog comes to a close, you are invited to participate in the mamo recitation practice. 

    Pacifying the Turmoil of the Mamos is recited in order to pacify the karmic cause of personal, social, and environmental chaos that accumulates at the year's end. It is an elaborate protector offering. By reciting the chant, we tune in to the protector principle of awareness and reconnect with sacred outlook, enabling us to welcome the new year of the Earth Pig on February 5 with a fresh and open heart.

    Remembering that the protectors, or dharmapalas, as well as deities altogether, are nothing else than projections of the richness of our own minds, by supplicating them, we are in fact rousing confidence in our own buddha nature.

    The function of the dharmapala, “protector of the truth”, is to protect us from deceptions and sidetracks on the path, to detect and clear away any obstacles to fully awakening in the phenomenal world.

    Everyone is welcome.
