Losar Poem by Jacqueline Gens & Artwork by Ingmar Pema Dechen


Year of the Male Metal Rat
Behold the brazen strut
From high minded big-mouths
Amid sharp shooters
And illusory masters of material gain
Smart know-it-alls before lesser peers
Beware the molten hook of unkindness
With its sting of indifference
Such bold lies
As visible as that ratty tail
Take a moment and mingle your mind
In the vast expanse of openness
Simply forget yourself and take
A leap into the greater good
OM AH HUM
Home at last!
HAPPY LOSAR!

Dear Vajra Family,

May the year of the Metal Mouse be auspicious, and bring peace, joy, good health and great prosperity to all.

All together in the same State
All together purifying our Samaya
All together keeping the precious Teachings in our hearts

An essential piece of equipment that allows KPC to make the very special prayer flag and peacock paper.
