The Queen of Great Bliss is a special kind of ceremony known in Vajrayana Buddhism as a tsok or feast practice. We celebrate and offer gratitude to the vitality and beauty in our lives and to the energy of the divine from which they emerge. By offering prayers we aspire for all beings to be established in this vitality and joy. In the Tibetan tradition, tsok practice is considered to be a very profound method of accumulating positive energy for ourselves, everyone around us, and our entire environment.
This puja is devoted to the goddess Vajravarahi, who represents the energy of creative manifestation, and the deities of her mandala. It is a beautiful practice with chanting, music, instruments, dance and extensive food offerings.
All are welcome to join us in this celebration. You are invited to make an offering or donation if you like.
