The activities of Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche

And so we arrive at the final Dakini Day of the year. The end of the year provides a opportune time for us to reflect on our actions, and make aspirations for the future. This year we have seen a lot of developments at the Samye Institute and we are excited about what the future holds. Do take some time to listen to Rinpoche’s video message where he details his wishes to grow the Samye Institute. The video can be found in the Platform Winter Fundraiser page linked below. 
From all of us at Samye Institute, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Sampa Lhundrup Feast Offering
Rinpoche just auspiciously completed the 3 day 100,000 Offering of Guru Sampa Lhundrup at Asura cave. This event started on the day of the full moon and was attended by a great gathering of monks and nuns the majority of whom have completed 3 years of retreat.

Global Magnetizing Accumulation
Four months ago, Rinpoche requested that all his students take up the magnetizing practice entitled “Giant Cloud of Blessings” as part of their daily practice.
“Learning how to work together to make very vast aspirations as a global Sangha to magnetize excellent conditions for Dharma resounding and all pure aspirations to be fulfilled.”
~ Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche
Since last Dakini Day, we have accumulated an extra 6,958 recitations, that’s 36% more than the previous month. This brings our grand total to 25,130 recitations. We’re still a long way from reaching our goal, so let’s push hard! We encourage everyone to participate in this powerful magnetizing activity.
