Over one thousand sangha members attended Ayang Rinpoche’s recent 4-day 100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities (Shitro) empowerment hosted by the Amitabha Foundation Hong Kong. The ceremonies, which were translated into Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese and English, concluded with a powerful Shitro puja and tsok offering officiated by 13 khenpos, lamas and monks from Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe, and from the Palyul Nyingma centers in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
