Next 24-Hour Full Moon Practice of Sherap Chamma Starts March 9

Ligmincha International

On March 9, 2020, and each subsequent full moon of 2020, join Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche online for meditation followed by a 24-hour mantra recitation session. This is a precious opportunity to engage in the healing practice of Sherap Chamma, Mother of Wisdom and Love. You can join any time during the 24-hour period. Advance registration is required.

Each session starts at 10 a.m. New York time on the day of a full moon and ends at 10 a.m. the following day. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will be supported by Ligmincha International’s global community of practitioners. Most of these 24-hour sessions will begin with a 20-minute meditation guided by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche; on March 9 and April 8, the initial meditation will be guided by Marcy Vaughn. In all sessions Rinpoche and Ligmincha lamas will take opportunities to join participants throughout the 24 hours.

Please note: If you previously registered for the March 9 Full Moon session, please be aware that due to technical issues, you will need to re-register using the link at By reregistering, you will receive a new link for joining the Zoom session. Thanks for your understanding!
