Dear Dharma Friends,

The ceremony was held under the auspices of His Eminence Lho Bontrul Rinpoche, His Eminence Kyenga Rinpoche, His Eminence Khamtrul Rinpoche from the Nemdo Kagyu Monastery, together with other Drikung Kagyu lamas and the community of disciples. His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche encourages his disciples to offer their dedications and prayers, and to engage in other virtuous practices. Rinpoche also said that the supplications and aspirations made will be accomplished accordingly and blessings will be received.
