    We will continue our New Year celebration on Saturday, February 17, at 636 Chase Road beginning with a 9am Lhasang.

    Lhasang marks beginning, opening, and purifying as well as inviting dralas and removing obstacles. You are invited to bring any household or personal item you would like to purify by passing it through the lhasang. Wallets, pocket knives, jewelry, and items that symbolize something special, are usual favorites. Please, dress warmly for this New Year event.
