'It is also mentioned in the tantras that by reciting this mantra you achieve the four qualities of being born in the Amitabha Buddha’s pure land and other pure lands; at the time of death, seeing Buddha and Bodhisattvas appearing in the sky; the devas making you offerings; and never being reborn in the hell, hungry ghost or animals realms.
In this precious human rebirth that we are experiencing now and meeting with the Buddha Dharma, especially the Avalokiteshvara’s practice and reciting Om Mani Padme Hung, it is easy for one to purify negative karma and accumulate extensive merit and one is able to ultimately achieved Enlightenment. We are unbelievably fortunate.
This retreat also blesses the country where it is held and brings much peace, happiness and prosperity. It will also help to remove obstacle and help in the progress of the world.
I encourage you to join this Mani Retreat and with a good motivation, we recite the mantra and develop loving kindness, compassion and bodhicita. Bodhicitta is very important in our Dharma practice.May we all continue the aspiration of Drubwang Rinpoche and benefit oneself and others by reciting the six syllabus mantra.
May all mother sentient beings, boundless as the sky,
have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May they be liberated from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May they never be separated from the happiness, which is free from sorrow.
May they rest in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion.'
His Eminence Thritsab Rinpoche
