September 4th, 2021 marks the second parinirvana anniversary of His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche. To commemorate this solemn occasion and to honour Rinpoche’s extraordinary life and enlightened deeds, a special all-day prayer service will be held in Kechara Forest Retreat in accordance with the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
Starting the day is an extensive 1000-Offering Lama Chopa Tsog (Je Tongchoe). This extremely meritorious puja includes the offering of 1000 candles, 1000 tormas, 1000 incense, 1000 water offerings and 1000 flowers so that disciples can accumulate oceans of merits for our Lama to return once more to continue turning the Wheel of Dharma.
This is followed by auspicious prayers of Tsem Rinpoche’s Guru Yoga and Name Mantra recitation to make special requests for Rinpoche’s blessings, and recitations of Manjushri Namasamgiti and Tsem Rinpoche’s Swift Return Prayers to create the necessary causes and merits for the successful search, recognition and enthronement of Rinpoche’s incarnation.
The last puja of the day is an extended Dorje Shugden kangso (fulfilment ritual) dedicated to Rinpoche’s swift return. This powerful puja will help remove all obstacles and create positive conditions for Rinpoche’s students and legacy to flourish, thus creating the causes for our unparalleled Lama’s swift rebirth.
We welcome you to join us in honouring Rinpoche’s life and enlightened deeds on this special day, and to have audience with Rinpoche’s Holy Relic Stupa in Tsem Ladrang.
You’re invited to contribute towards Rinpoche’s parinirvana anniversary pujas. Your sponsorship of these extremely meritorious prayers includes one or more complete sets of puja offerings (flowers, candles, tormas, incense & tsog).
