advice from His Holiness, the birthday celebration will also include the

Fourth Gyalwang Drukpa Kunkhyen Pema Karpo will also be taking place on this

Zangchod Boom, or "A Hundred Thousand Prayers for Excellent
and Extraordinary Deeds" is an annual prayer event based on
the practice of Samantabhadra. Also known as "The King of Prayers", it details
the practice of the great Bodhisattva Samantabhadra who attained enlightenment
through perfection of positive and beneficial deeds. The prayer essentially
recapitulates the extraordinary activities of Bodhisattvas. By the cumulative ef
ort of reciting "A Hundred Thousand Prayers for Excellent and Extraordinary
Deeds" together with His Holiness and his spiritual entourage of Rinpoches,
monks, nuns as well as lay devotees, the participants are able to
achieve the following:
purify great negativities in past and present lives and
accumulate vast positive potential and merit
• aspire to engage in the practices of those on the i ve paths
of the Bodhisattva vehicle - the paths of accumulation,
preparation, seeing, meditation and no more learning
• strengthen and awaken the imprints of one's disposition
and past wishes to accomplish the courageous deeds of
• protect the virtues and positive ef ects of positive actions
from goint to waste through dedicating one's potential t
achieve the state of great Bodhisattva Samantabhadra and
• expand the positive potentials or positive karmic ef ects of
one's actions so that they become inexhaustible and the
fruits of such inexhaustible positive potentials can benefit
oneself and all others
• receive, one day, the prophesy directly from Buddha
Amitabha, about one's own enlightenment, so that one will
become Buddha with perfect wisdom, perfect compassion,
perfect love and perfect skilful means to help all the beings

March 8 100000 Ganacakra with Drukpa Holiness
Ganachakra also known as Tsog in Tibetan, is an assembly
of Tantrayana practitioners, coming together to recite prayers, chant
mantras, enact mudras, make offerings and practice various rituals as prescribed
in the specific sacred text. The entire practice seeks to transform the place
of practice into the sacred abode (mandala) of the deity and the practitioners
into the various forms of the deity and his entourage. This assembly invokes
great energy to accumulate inconceivable positive energy and eradicate negative
inl uences.His Holiness and his parents will join together at the holy
Boudhanath Stupa with hundreds of monks and nuns in this wish-fulfilling prayer,
in benefit of all sentient beings.For those who are unable to participate in
person, by sponsoring the Ganachakra, one will also be benefiting in the similar
ways. Contact info@... about participation and sponsorship.
