Full Moon 22 September 2021
Dear Sangha Family,
On Full Moon days many events and meditations take place all over the World.
Let’s join in as one Humanity!
September is the month when we, in loving memory, are paying homage to Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, the brightest light in our lives forever. May our hearts develop such wisdom and compassion. – Link
Full moon is traditionally called the “Harvest Moon,” the full Moon closest to the fall equinox is so-called because it helps farmers get their crops in late into the night. These days it’s more just an iconic-sounding name, but nevertheless the “Harvest Moon” is one of the few full Moons that millions will want to see with their own eyes as it appears on the eastern horizon draped in autumnal oranges and yellows. – Link
We connect to an open ongoing online “Practising Together Event” with the Vajra Dance of Space of the Unborn of 12A whenever we wish, according to our circumstances, at any time or place on our Earth.
In order for all practitioners to join worldwide, a 36-hour Zoom link will be kept open around the Full Moon from 9:00 pm 19 September 2021 until 9:00 am 21 September 2021 (Tenerife time).
Please check your local time on the https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/
This practice is for those who already know how to do it and who have received transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
For the link please contact and identify yourself with your local Vajra Dance Instructor or local Gakyil. Please don’t share this link on social media, forums, or open mailing lists! It can compromise the function, possibly then being hacked.
The event is dedicated mainly to the practice of Bodhicitta in the Light of Guruyoga, integrating in the state of Contemplation with the Vajra Dance of Space of the Unborn of 12A.

There is no one starting or ending or guiding a particular practice.
Before going online at whatever moment or time in the 36 hours global connecting practising stream we at least take a moment, settling and bringing awareness to our body and breath, generating an altruistic and gentle attitude in the knowledge of all beings inseparably interconnected, relaxing in the A, integrating whatever in the state of contemplation. If we feel agitated or whatever we just observe it, leaving it as it is, being gentle to ourselves and just continuing and integrating that with our practice.
When we finish our session, we take a moment for a dedication in our mind and can also empower it with mantra.
While participants need to be automatically muted, continuous audio musical support is provided to accompany and synch us together in this practice. The support is visually knowing that we are practicing together at that moment. Maybe we are just by ourselves, maybe there are many, maybe few, it does not matter.
We can also wear the Vajra Dance costume, if we wish and when our circumstances permit.
We are free, also we can lower the sound to integrate best with our own tune and voice of A and the natural sounds around us. Even if we are not perfectly synced physically, we are in the real sense.
