Additional Special Events

Sur and Grand Sur

Each night of the retreat, there will be a Sur ceremony, and on the last night of the Retreat, there will be a Grand Sur Ceremony with His Holiness.

Each night of this retreat with His Holiness, the 34th sMenri Trizin, there will be a Sur ceremony. The Sur Ceremonies will be dedicated to all sentient beings – to pay off karmic debts, to free us from the suffering and emotional obscuration, and to awaken our inner awareness.

On the last night of the retreat, May 27th. His Holiness, the 34th sMenri Trizin will perform a Grand Sur along the shore of Garuda Lake.

This Grand Sur, performed by His Holiness, will be very special. Attending this retreat and being a part of this ceremony will be a powerful experience as we dedicate this Sur to all Sentient beings and for all who have passed. Truly a special experience for all.

We would like to reach students from around the world to participate each night of the Sur and the Grand Kar Sur in dedication to all sentient beings for the benefits of health, peace for the people who are no longer with us. For the release of negative Karma and obscurations in our lives.

 

Morning Sang

Each morning of the retreat, there will be a Sang Ceremony performed. Cleansing negative karma, opens blockages of internal energy and uplifts life force chi. Beneficial and support to our journey

 

Fish Release

During this beautiful retreat, His Holiness will perform a fish release ceremony in Garuda Lake.

This is a blessing ceremony for all sentient beings, and a way to cultivate merit. This ceremony is to save the life of the fish. By saving the life of the fish, we clear our karma and the obscurations of our life.

You can dedicate the merit from this ceremony for yourself, for your loved ones, or for loved ones who have passed away, to clear karma for a higher rebirth.

If you are attending His Holiness’s teaching in person, you can purchase the fish and provide the names of the persons for whom you dedicate the merit on site.

If you are attending via Zoom, you may order the fish and provide the names of dedication online. These names will be provided to His Holiness when he performs this ceremony.

When His Holiness was here last, this was a wonderful experience for all practitioners participating. His Holiness went out on Garuda Lake in a boat. His Holiness and the monks in attendance performed the ceremony and released the fish as a blessing to all sentient beings. This was a moving ceremony to see. We hope you can be part of it this year!
