When you begin to practice Tibetan Buddhism spiritual practices, you may want to set up a shrine and maintain it in your home as your special space for meditation. In this class, you will learn the purpose and benefits of a shrine and how to set up your own. You will learn the purpose and types of daily shrine offerings, the meaning and significance of the Eight Offerings, how to remove daily and older offerings, and how to close the shrine for the night.

Ngakpa Tashi Paljor began studying with H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche in 1977, and in his attempt to understand the teachings of the Buddha, joined Rinpoche in Pilgrimage in 2003 and Lamdre in 2007. He has taken teachings from many of the great Lamas of the 20th century and has been practicing Buddhism since 1972.
