Description

Lama Jampa will give the initiation of Shakyamuni Buddha and the Sixteen Arhats from the lineage of Atisha. The Buddha selected 16 of his arhat disciples and asked them to remain in the world to support the dharma and benefit beings.

At the end of the initiation Lama Jampa will give the reading transmission (‘lung’) for the puja commonly called ‘The Sixteen Arhats’ which is done at Sakya Samten Ling on the new moon days and on the four holy Buddha days of the year.

The full title of the puja is ‘The Liturgy of the Concise Puja of Prostrations to the Sthaviras together with Offerings’ and was composed by Shakyashri.
