Praise of the Twelve Deeds of the Buddha
Schedule & Location
A practice commonly undertaken on the four holy days of the Tibetan Buddhist calendar, the Praise of the Twelve Deeds of the Buddha is a short text with a poignant tune for chanting in Tibetan. It relays the twelve deeds of a "supreme Nirmanakaya," that is, a buddha who manifests as a buddha in the ordinary world to teach the Dharma to beings.
The practice takes less than an hour, including introductory and concluding prayers. The text will be shared online in Tibetan, phoentics, and English for everyone to access. If you have a copy of your own with Tibetan phoentics, feel free to bring it.
More information about the Twelve Deeds is available in this online booklet by Kyabje Thrangu Rinpoche.
