Message from the FPMT International Office:
The official long life puja on behalf of the entire FPMT will be offered to Lama Zopa Rinpoche at Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Singapore on Sunday, March 13 as part of Rinpoche’s teaching event there. The puja will start at 9 a.m. Singapore time (GMT+8) = [5 p.m. March 12, Pacific Time].
During the long life puja Rinpoche will be requested to give teachings on lojong (thought transformation). These teachings and the long life puja will be webcast live on FPMT’s Livestream page so that all can participate live or by video later.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche is the spiritual head of our organization and a well-respected lama in the world of Tibetan Buddhism. Thousands of Buddhist practitioners – lay students and monastics – depend on Rinpoche’s support, both spiritual and practical. It is very important to do everything we can to create the causes for Rinpoche to stay with us and guide us for as long as possible.
Land of Medicine Buddha will set up the video so that we can watch and listen to Rinpoche’s teachings.
At LMB, we will conduct the basic Lama Chopa (Guru Puja) with a few extra prayers, along with the Mandala Offering and representations of the Body, Speech and Mind, a Double Vajra brocade and images of long life deities, while tuning in quietly to the Livestream of the puja in Singapore. When Rinpoche teaches we will turn the sound up to listen.
How You Can Participate:
- Join us in offering prayers and practices for the health and long life of Lama Zopa Rinpoche with a long life puja on March 12. We expect this to be a friendly, community event.
