Dechen Choekhor 100 Million Avalokiteshvara Mantra Recitation (12th Jan. – 10th Feb. 2012)

An announcement to all Rinpoche's students and Dharma practitioners, who are looking for an opportunity to join the "Dechen Choekhor Hundred Million Annual Recitation Mantra Association" (DHARMA) to accumulate the vast merits of group mantra recitation!

Here is an auspicious occasion for you to register your participation and recitations through joining and/or sponsoring our grand annual recitation program, and be part of the DHARMA practitioners.

Rinpoche has started this program after the demise of his beloved mother in February this year.

Rinpoche's mother had always had the vision of starting this grand recitation on her own, and had discussed her thought with Rinpoche numerous times. However, due to the ongoing and incomplete Dharma projects of Rinpoche, this grand recitation program kept getting delayed.

In February this year, sadly Rinpoche's mother suddenly passed away after a short bout of fever and cough. Rinpoche immediately worked on this project in loving memory of her and to fulfil her noble wishes to benefit all sentient beings.

In particular she had mentioned that this recitation should be performed to benefit all those who depend so much on Rinpoche and for Dechen Choekhor Sanghas.

She used to say, "Rinpoche, I always had this dream that you could set up a yearly 'DHUNDRUP' to help all your followers". That was her very own words! Rinpoche was deeply touched and moved by this and promised himself that he will certainly conduct several 'DHUNDRUP' a year, if not at least once every year.

So Rinpoche had finally started this program in early 2011 with 'The 100 Million Recitation of Buddha Amitabha's Mantra'. The coming year shall be 'The 100 Million Recitation of Lord Avalokiteshvara's Mantra'.

The starting date for the grand recitation would be on the 18th day of the eleventh month in Tibetan calendar, which is the anniversary of the parinirvana of Rinpoche's root guru, the 8th Kyabgon Khamtrul Rinpoche (corresponds to 12th January 2011).

The completion date would be on the 18th day of the twelfth month in Tibetan calendar, which is the anniversary of the day Rinpoche's mother passed away (corresponds to 10th February 2011).

Rinpoche's mother is one of the many faithful and devoted disciples of previous Choegon Rinpoche. In her early life, she had spent years studied and practiced Dharma in Dechen Cheokhor Tibet. She is sincerely and dearly remembered for her unshakeable faith in Buddhadharma, her devotion to his root guru, her inner strength, her unconditional love and care for those near and far.

Recitation and relevant rituals is to be performed continuously throughout the month long duration. On top of Dechen Choekhor Kullu, the grand recitation will be performed in 10 other different locations in Tibet and in various parts of The Himalayan Regions of India.

All are welcome to participate.
