Christmas Eve Puja at Langri Tangpa Centre
24 December 2021 @ 6:30PM – 8:30PM AEST
Join us for our annual Shakyamuni Buddha puja, offering all the Christmas trees and lights in the world! We make many elaborate and beautiful offerings and recite praises, all in English with the traditional Tibetan tunes. We offer chai and dedicate the merits of the year, and finish with strewing flowers to the ten directions! Don’t miss the best Buddhist party you could ever come to!
Enjoyed by both Buddhists and non-Buddhist alike, this is a popular annual event that brings meaning to what is often experienced as a stressful and hyper-materialistic time of year.
We offer prayers for world peace and community dedications for the end of the year. We also display the giant 3m applique silk thangka of the Buddha, where everyone will have a chance to bathe the baby buddha statue on the altar, and receive a blessing from the nuns of the holy Buddhist relic.
If you are bringing offerings, please make sure they are non-perishable and commercially packaged (to adhere to our COVID-safe plan). They will be offered to the needy at a later date.
