During Saga Dawa Month:
10th Annual Mantra-Thon
for World Peace and Healing:
Guru Rinpoche Teachings, Practice
and Mantra Accumulation
May 23 - June 5, 2020
Tulku Orgyen Rinpoche and Odiyana Institute wish you all an auspicious Saga Dawa 2020! Saga Dawa commemorates several important events in the life of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni: his birth, Enlightenment and Parinirvana are all celebrated. It is also a time when the power of our virtue is multiplied many thousands of times over. For this reason, group spiritual practice is emphasized.
This Saga Dawa, we are pleased to announce our 10th Annual Mantra-Thon for World Peace and Healing! Due to the devastating impacts of this year's COVID-19 pandemic on the physical, mental, social and economic health of countless people around the world, profound compassionate methods of spiritual practice are needed more than ever.
Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche and other living masters of Tibetan Buddhism have stated that the most powerful and important practices to be doing for these times are those associated with Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava). As such, this year's Mantra-Thon is even more timely, since we will be focusing on Guru Rinpoche practice and mantra. As usual, we hold the collective goal of reciting OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUM, 1,000,000 times.
