Chinese New Year: Homa (Fire Ritual)

For the month of February 2021, we would like to highlight the qualities of the Ox—fortitude, strength, and diligence—by encouraging all of us to integrate them into our practice. To this end, we encourage you to make a vow this year as a symbol of our commitment.

Please submit your vow here by February 26th at 12:00pm EST. At the end of the month on Friday, February 26th at 7:30pm EST, Guo Gu will perform a Homa (fire) ritual as an offering to cement all of our vows.

The ritual will include an invitation of all the buddhas and bodhisattvas, generating the bodhi mind, paying homage to the Three Jewels, repentance and vows, making fire offerings with your vows, and transferring of merit.

Prior to the meeting, please download or print the liturgy.
