You are cordially invited to an international Shedrub Mandala celebration of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche’s birthday, this Friday, September 4th. Since Rinpoche has not been able to travel this summer, the monks of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling have organized an online program for all of us to connect with Rinpoche, offer prayers for Rinpoche to live very, very long, and to request teachings. We hope Rinpoche will also take this moment to give a live teaching to the global Sangha.
The event will run from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm in Nepal and will be live streamed around the world.
Although we will be in our homes, please feel free to set-up beautiful offerings of candles, incense, flowers, etc., as if we were meeting Rinpoche in-person. To participate in the event, please see the information below:
