Dear Friends of the Ripa International Sangha,
In less than two weeks, on January 31st through February 2nd, 2023, the Rigon Thupten Mindolling Monastery will celebrate the Long Life Mandala offering ceremony for His Eminence Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche. This ceremony is being organized jointly by the members of both Ripa monasteries, Thupten Mindolling in Odisha, India and Tashi Choeling in Pharping, Nepal.
The main purpose for conducting this ceremony, followed by an extensive Long Life puja, Tenshuk, is to dispel all forms of obstacles in the life of H.E. Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche, as the upcoming year of the Tibetan Water Rabbit is an obstacle year for him according to Tibetan astrology. Even if you cannot participate in person, you may easily join these powerful ceremonies from afar with your donation and prayers.
1 – Participation From Afar
Whoever wishes to donate and support these pujas within the monasteries may send their contribution(s) to the RIC accounts and links below. To minimize bank fees, once collected, the RIC will send the donations directly to the monastery.
2 – Contributing Our Prayers Individually and On Zoom Thursdays at 19:00 (GMT +1)
In addition to the many extensive pujas performed by the monastic communities, there are a large number of Seven Line Prayers and Vajra Guru Mantras to accumulate. We are invited to do these prayers and mantras in our homes and meeting centers.
We will join together via Zoom each Thursday evening from 19:00 to 20:30 for Protectors and Puja Accumulations. Please join us so we may enjoy our efforts in connecting with each other! May there be auspiciousness for the benefit of all sentient beings and Long Life for His Eminence!
With Love and Gratitude,
The RIC and Ripa Ladrang Foundation
