Offering to the Spiritual Guide puja

Kadampa Meditation Center NY 47 Sweeney Rd, Glen Spey, NY

The practice of relying upon a Spiritual Guide, or ‘Guru Yoga’, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments.
In Kadampa Buddhism, Guru Yoga is practiced in association with Je Tsongkhapa, an emanation of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri.
The principal Guru Yoga of Je Tsongkhapa is Offering to the Spiritual Guide, which is an extensive practice that is usually performed twice a month, on the 10th and 25th days, at Kadampa Buddhist centers.
You may wish to bring an offering of food (vegetarian) or flowers for this puja, though it isn't required.
