The activities of Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche

This month, Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche dedicated time not only for various Dharma activities in Vietnam, but also for the annual Vajrayāna rituals at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery. Additionally, both Tulku Mingmar Tsering and Khenpo Gyaltsen led programs throughout Asia.
According to the Tibetan calendar, the 24th day of 12th month (the 29th of January), was the anniversary of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche’s parinirvāṇa. This year, we have happy news to share with you. Before his parinirvāṇa, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche commissioned the making of 1,200 Guru Rinpoche statues. Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche blessed these statues. They now are all housed at the Nagi Gompa nunnery. Recently, Phakchok Rinpoche has commissioned for gold to be put on the statue faces, for the statue eyes to be opened, and for new brocades to adorn the place where the statues reside. So far, 600 statues have been completed. After Losar, the remaining 600 statues will be completed. Rinpoche has undertaken this for the benefit of all of us involved in supporting, organizing, and practicing dharma, and for all beings.

Global Magnetizing Accumulation
Rinpoche has requested that all his students, and all who are inspired to do so, recite the Giant Cloud of Blessings, or Wang Dü magnetizing supplication as part of their daily practice. This supplication, composed by Ju Mipham Rinpoche, brings enormous benefit. He would like us as a global sangha to accumulate 1 million of these prayers annually!
Our grand total at the moment is 112,882 recitations. Great jobs everyone! 👏👏👏
