Chanting Meditation Ceremony with Tibetan Buddhist Nuns

Green Tara Prayer and Meditation Ceremony

Led by Ani Tendol and the Keydong Nuns

We are honored to announce an opportunity to share the cultural treasures of Tibet, and its teachings on peace and wholeness. Six Tibetan Buddhist nuns will perform a chanting meditation ceremony (called a puja) dedicated to the Bodhisattva ideal represented by Avalokitesvara, the Diety of Compassion. This practice is a traditional way to purify the mind and includes visualizations, verse recitations, beautiful chanting and heartfelt prayer.

This workshop will be led by Ani Tendol. “Ani” is the honorific prefix which means “Nun”. She will help us explore inner peace within ourselves and how this reflects and affects the world we live in. She will share life stories of the Keydong nuns, who are among the first Tibetan Buddhist women monastics to learn to build a mandala, a sacred art practice which was traditionally reserved for male monks only.

The Keydong Thuk-Che-Cho-Ling Nunnery, originally founded in the southwest Keydong region of Tibet, today lives on in exile in Kathmandu, Nepal. Established formally in 1982, the Keydong Nunnery exists due to the perseverance, courage, and dedication of a core group of women monastics who, having fled Tibet in 1959, made the arduous journey across Tibet to found a new home for their nunnery. This marks the nuns’ third appearance in Connecticut, having visited in 1998 and 2005. We are so blessed to have them join us for this workshop.

The workshop will include meditation, chanting, a question and answer session. A reception with vegetarian food and drinks will be shared immediately following the workshop. All proceeds will be donated to Keydong Thuk-Che-Cho-Ling Nunnery.

RSVP is required. Please register as soon as possible as space is limited and reservations are on a first come, first served basis.
