ABOUT THE EVENT
2014 SINGAPORE’S GRANDEST EVENT
OF THE GLORIOUS LINEAGE DRIKUNG KAGYU
Led by His Holiness
Drikung Kyabgön Chetsang Rinpoche
The renowned Tibetan Buddhist Master and Throne Holder of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage, His Holiness Drikung Kyabgön Chetsang Rinpoche will be here to conduct a large-scale two-day Buddhist event for the very first time in Singapore!
During this 2-day event, precious blessings and empowerments of Namgyalma or Ushnisha Vijaya in Sanskrit (Deity of Longevity and Purification) and the Thousand- Armed Avalokiteshvara (Lord of Great Compassion) will be bestowed. A special Yellow Zambala (Deity of Wealth) prayer session and robe offering ceremony will also be conducted. In addition, participants will partake in the Namgyalma Thousand Offering Puja and offer 1000 sets of Torma (food), Lamp, Incense, Parasol and Victory Banner for the accumulation of merit, purification, longevity and accomplishment.
According to the scriptures, Namgyalma is the manifestation of Buddha Vairochana. If anyone who is touched by the shadow of or even the breeze that comes into contact with a stupa or banner with the mantra will not be reborn in the lower realms; what need is there to mention the extent of purification experienced by those who hear or recite this mantra. Similarly, the merit of a single recitation of Lord Avalokiteshvara’s heart mantra, Om Mani Padme Hung is also inconceivable.
The highlight of this special event, the Namgyalma Thousand Offering Puja is a good way to receive blessings from Namgyalma. Making these symbolical offerings not only plant seeds of positivity for a bountiful future but also help to clear negativities and obstacles in life.
In addition, the wealth attracting prayers of Zambala and the meritorious act of offering robes to the ordained ones also enable us to create positive imprints to pave the way to better days ahead.
So join us with your family and friends to experience the joy and bliss of this wonderful event with His Holiness Drikung Kyabgön on the 24th & 25th May 2014 at SUNTEC, Hall 403.
