Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery, Dechen Chokhor Ling, in the Mundgod Tibetan Settlement, South India

4-Arm Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara), Buddha of Compassion

The annual Drubchen will be held April 19 to May 4 at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery, Dechen Chokhor Ling, in the Mundgod Tibetan Settlement, South India. The Drubchen this year focuses on Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion.  All the monks, nuns, khenpos and rinpoches will be accumulating 100 million Chenrezig mantras.

Ayang Rinpoche requests that all Buddhist practitioners and others associated with the Amitabha Foundation worldwide contribute to this practice and send their recitations of the Chenrezig mantra to accumulate the 100 million total. Mantras may be accumulated and the totals sent in daily between April 19 and May 2.  Send your mantra totals to the Amitabha Foundation in your own country, or to the Drikung Charitable Society.
