Lama Tsong Khapa Guru Yoga is a traditional practice in Tibetan Buddhism and is a seven-limb prayer
related to Lama Tsong Khapa (1357-1419) who was a great Tibetan scholar, saint, and yogi of the
14th century and founder of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. The practice is recited in English.
The practice is conducted on Lama Tsong Khapa Day which is a celebration of the anniversary of the
parinirvana of Lama Tsongkhapa and is considered an auspicious and holy day.
Cost: Free of charge/by donation.

The benefits of Lama Tsong Khapa Guru Yoga
It is a particularly powerful practice for receiving the blessings of one’s personal teacher and
developing the realization of guru devotion. By doing the practice you create positive merits for
yourself, others, and the center.
About the session
As there will be no teaching/explanation about the practice within the actual session, it is mainly
meant for those we are already familiar with traditional practices and prayers within Tibetan
Buddhism. However, you are very welcome to attend even if you are not familiar with these
practices. You can attend at whatever level suits you, participate in the whole practice or just
participate in whatever part of the practice makes sense to you and listen in/observe the rest.
At the end of the practice, we dedicate the positive energy created for the benefit of those who have
recently died, are ill, are suffering or in some other way needs support. If you would like to add
anyone to the dedication list, please email Maria Damsholt (see contact information below). Anyone
can add someone to the dedication list, also if you don’t participate in the session.
