Join us on Tuesday, 30th August 2022 for a special Soongdrup Blessing Puja which will take us one step closer to the final consecration of the Tsem Rinpoche Relic Temple + Stupa!
This intensive preparatory puja will bless and empower the sacred items and substances inside our two new stupas — His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche’s Relic Stupa and the Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen Stupa — and the 24 statues of Rinpoche’s previous incarnations.
Conducted by visiting Sangha, the puja will be led by the chantmaster emeritus of Shar Gaden Monastery, Venerable Gen Usu-la Lobsang Jinpa. During the puja, various rituals of self-generation and the generation of deities into the material substances inside the stupas and statues will be performed.
This important ritual is the penultimate step before the final Rabney consecration ceremony of this holy site.
These benefits are particularly relevant when building Buddhist places of worship such as the Tsem Rinpoche Relic Temple and Stupa. Every time a devotee, pilgrim or visitor makes offerings and prayers here, a portion of the positive spiritual energy is transferred to everyone who has contributed to the temple’s construction — a perpetual source of merits.
This is why we place great importance on fulfilling the traditional rituals to enhance the blessings of the holy objects inside the Temple — to increase the stream of merits for all sponsors and supporters.

Admission to the puja is free and all are welcome to attend. If you are attending, you may wish to offer kuyong (a token monetary offering) to the Sangha who will be conducting the puja.
