Guru Rinpoche Drupcho
8:30am 17 August 2019 - 12:30pm 21 August 2019
Venue: Samye Ling
The prayers will be particularly dedicated to Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche, who established Samye Ling and guided it from humble beginnings to the large thriving Dharma centre it is today. Over the years countless thousands of people have benefitted from Samye Ling and without Akong Rinpoche that wouldnâ€™t have been possible.Â
Whether you already have a connection with Samye Ling or whether you are visiting for the first time, please do come to join us in these meaningful and powerful prayers.
The Guru Rinpoche sadhana is available in English phonetics, so anyone who has taken Refuge and received the authorisation (lung) can participate fully.Â Even if you canâ€™t read the text, please come and meditate or recite mantras.
