On the 10th and 25th of each month NKT Kadampa Buddhists celebrate our Spiritual Guide, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso , by engaging in one of our most important meditation practices, Offering to the Spiritual Guide. Together we make requests and open our hearts and minds to receive our Spiritual Guide’s blessings.
On the 10th of the month we emphasize the accumulation of great merit, which is then dedicated to the long life of our Spiritual Guide.
On the 25th of the month we make sincere requests for the swift attainment of the realizations of the stages of the path to Enlightenment.
There are many benefits from practicing Offering to the Spiritual Guide. These are explained in the book Great Treasury of Merit, which contains a complete commentary to the practice.
