A Guru Rinpoche 100,000 Tsok Offering Puja will be held at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe, South India this July. It will begin on Guru Rinpoche’s Birthday, July 13, and continue on July 14, 2016. This year is the year of the fire monkey, an extremely auspicious time, as fire monkey is the birth year of Guru Rinpoche. It will be another 60 years years before this powerful anniversary happens again. Click here for more photos from last year’s puja.
The practice of offering tsok helps to remove obstacles and obscurations, and to accumulate merit and wisdom, bringing peace, positive circumstances, and liberation, as we dedicate the merit to all beings.
To make an auspicious connection with the 100,000 Guru Rinpoche Tsok Offering Puja, and to dedicate the merit in the name of a loved one, please make your US tax deductible donation below, or send a check in USD to Amitabha Foundation, P.O. Box 2572, Aptos, California 95001.
May all beings benefit!

In honor of the U.S. holiday of Mother’s Day, May 8, 2016, we are kicking off a new fundraising campaign through Global Giving to support our clinic in Tibet. In 2014 we raised $27,165 and in 2015 another $5,025 for our Safe Childbirth in Tibet project through Global Giving. Our success was due to the exceptional generosity of friends of the Amitabha Foundation, and their friends reached through Facebook, Twitter and other online social media.
Our goal this year is to raise $30,000, enough to pay health workers’ salaries for 1 year, provide training and supplies to reduce infant mortality and purchase a new ambulance for the Rima Village Clinic in Ayang Rinpoche’s birthplace area in Eastern Tibet. Read more about our Global Giving project here, or make a donation now. You can pay online or by check.
Even if you have very limited financial resources, you can help us raise money for this important cause by creating your own personalized fundraising page for this project. You could set one up to commemorate Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, your birthday, your wedding, the marathon you’re about to run, your new business venture, to remember a loved one, or for any other reason you can think of!
Share our project on Twitter or Facebook, so we can reach others who will care about saving mothers’ and infants’ lives in this remote area on the Tibetan Plateau. Every new person you connect with could make the difference in providing a clean home birth with an educated birth attendant and access to emergency care.
Thank you for caring!
