Join us on Sunday, 8th October 2023 for a ceremonial long life Tenshug offering to request our lineage lamas to live long and continue their enlightened activities for the benefit of all beings.
This highly auspicious ceremony is dedicated:
A Disciple’s Responsibility
During this degenerate age, lamas of Kensur Rinpoche and Choji-la’s generation, traditionally trained and pure in practice, are far and few in between. Their knowledge and attainments are a precious healing resource sorely needed in a world full of anger, pain and suffering.
Lamas of such high calibre have full control over their birth and passing. They manifest solely for the benefit of sentient beings. When the karmic causes for that benefit begin to wane, they can choose to enter clear light and take rebirth in a younger, newer form in order to continue their work under more suitable conditions.
Thus as practitioners and supporters of the lineage, it is our responsibility to keep creating the causes for these rare beings to remain with us. One such method is by offering a Tenshug Long Life Ceremony.
A Powerful Offering
During a tenshug, students make fervent requests to the lama to remain longer with us. In order for a tenshug to be effective, the lama to whom it is being offered must formally accept the tenshug ritual. Once the lama accepts the tenshug, he will extend his life in order to continue turning the wheel of Dharma.
This particular offering was requested by Tsem Ladrang, on behalf of all members of Kechara and all disciples and followers of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. We are fortunate that Kensur Rinpoche and Choji-la have humbly accepted our offering of a Tenshug Long Life Ceremony.
This auspicious ritual will be performed by representatives from the main monasteries of our lineage, including Shar Gaden, Serpom, Phegyeling and Segyu, and they will be joined by qualified lamas and geshes from around the world.
