Happy LOSAR from all at KSD Dublin. And a New Year’s message from Ani Yonten
After three months as a resident nun in Kagyu Samye Dzong Dublin I feel I am settling in and activities gradually start to develop. But of course, there is always still a lot to aim for.
I want to thank you all for your continual support to the Centre as well as to me personally during my first months here in Dublin.
In the Karma Kagyu tradition, the week before LOSAR – Tibetan New Year – is usually dedicated to the Mahakala protector practices aimed at clearing away any obstacles remaing from the old year to start the New year afresh, hoping it will bring peace and harmony and abundance, both on a personal level and to the world in general. To attend these prayers this year, I will be in Samye Ling in Scotland from 2nd to 10th February.
I wish you all a Happy LOSAR and looking forward to meeting you again in the Year of the Wood Dragon, may it bring joy and harmony and many opportunities to practice and develop on the dharma path.
