Mantras and Prayers to overcome obstacles to Samye Ling and especially Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche’s health and long life

1 Aug 2017

Earlier this year H H Karmapa advised that we recite a total of one hundred million White Tara mantras and four million Seven Branch prayers to overcome obstacles.

Chamgon Tai Situpa also recommended we recite 100,000 Praises to Tara.

You can see below what we have accomplished so far – our thanks to everyone who has contributed!

We have also arranged for many millions of White Tara mantras and other prayers to be recited in Dolma Lhakang (Akong Rinpoche’s Monastery) and other Monasteries in Tibet and Nepal.

What to do next…

Please do continue to count your mantras and prayers, whether individually or in your local Dharma centre, and send them to

Those who don’t have much time to recite prayers and mantras can also contribute by sponsoring prayers at Dolma Lhakang dedicated to overcoming obstacles to Samye Ling and for Lama Yeshe Rinpoche’s health and long life.  To arrange this please contact the Akong Memorial Foundation by phone on (+44) 013873 73340, or by email to
