A Message from H.E. Chhoje Tulku Rinpoche: “Practice and Prayers for H.E. Soktse Rinpoche”
As many of you know, Soktse Rinpoche is now 95 years old and has recently suffered from some ill health.
The Nechung oracle recently predicted obstacles to “the great Vidyadhara, Soktse Rinpoche’s” life and advised that to overcome these obstacles, all of Soktse Rinpoche’s devotees as a group should offer a great Ten Shug Long Life practice, an elaborate Long Life Mandala Offering and a Khandro SunDok, a long Supplication practice to the Dakinis with Lama dance to allow Soktse Rinpoche’s Nirmanakaya to remain with us.
These practices will be offered intensively over a 3 day period at Chatral Rinpoche’s lakhang in Siliguri (West Bengal) beginning early morning on Sunday, June 12th and culminating throughout the Great Wheel day, June 14th.
Numerous Rinpoche’s, Khenpo’s, monastics and lay devotees will gather to participate. As Soktse Rinpoche’s heart son, I will leave the US for India in early June to preside.
As the Nechung oracle stated very clearly that in order to vanquish these obstacles, this practice must be a dedicated group effort, I am asking all who have connection with Soktse Rinpoche, everyone who has received empowerments and teachings and who benefit from our precious Lama’s extraordinary blessings to wholeheartedly participate in these practices.
Please send a donation before 5 pm MST on Sunday, June 5, 2022 through the Padmasambhava Meditation Center (PMC) website and please dedicate your excellent practice — especially Vajrasattva, Vajra Guru and Long Life prayers for Soktse Rinpoche’s long life during this 3 day period beginning from our evening time on Saturday June 11th thru the June 14th full moon day.
Please send as small or as large a donation as you can afford for this group offering, whether it’s one dollar or many more — what’s important is that each and every one of us with this profound connection, that we all wholeheartedly participate in this group prayer for our Soktse Rinpoche’s very long life and excellent health, so that we all join together in this powerful prayer mandala. Any donation that you send will be used to fund this long life ceremony.
