Chopon classes on the 18th

A chopon is the person who acts as the head assistant during and in preparation for ceremonies and rituals. They are tasked with making offerings and handling ritual items on the shrine (and when present, conveying them to the lama).

PCD-DC will sponsor our first session of chopon classes. Tentatively, a date of September 18th at 2 PM is suggested. This is a chance to pool our knowledge especially on the practices PCD-DC is actively performing:

Long Green Tara Tsog
Shower of Blessings
100 Dieties Tsog
Rigzin Dupa
the short Green Tara practice we do doesn't really have much need of a chopon beyond the incense blessing during the 7 line prayer.

Open to all.
