Offerings for HH Dalai Lama's Long Life
Lama Zopa Rinpoche and the FPMT organization will be offering a long life puja to His Holiness the Dalai Lama on 24 May 2023 at Namgyal Monastery, Mcleod Ganj, India.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche is planning to offer one thousand statues of Shakyamuni Buddha to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. These beautiful statues are in the process of being made, gilded in gold, filled with mantras, painted, and consecrated in Nepal. As it takes time to make one thousand Buddha statues, Rinpoche will be initially offering a few hundred statues in the actual long life puja. The remaining statues will be offered over the next few months as they are completed.
In addition, two beautiful life-size Padmasambhava and Namgyalma statues will be offered and presented to His Holiness during the long life puja.
This is a precious opportunity for every FPMT affiliated centre, project, and service to join in this offering.
We welcome you to join in this incredible great fortune by being part of this offering dedicated for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Rinpoche has said that the most important thing FPMT can do is to please His Holiness. In this way the whole organization will continue to have a strong connection to and receive guidance from His Holiness, who in actuality is Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion.
Join us in offering!
Dorje Chang Institute invites anyone who wishes to offer ANY amount towards the long life puja and/or the 1,000 Buddha statues. We will combine all of our offerings together and send our collective contribution. If you would like to contribute please make your pledge using the form button below.
You can contribute towards any of the following:
- any amount towards DCI’s collective offering for the Long Life Puja for His Holiness in general and/or
- to sponsor any amount towards the offering of the Buddha statues to be offered to His Holiness,
- and/or to fully sponsor one or more of these Buddha statues (the cost to fully sponsor one statue is US$300 each = $482NZD) to be offered to His Holiness.
Time is limited for this opportunity to sponsor these statues.
Please note: After all of the 1,000 statues have been sponsored, then if we receive any further sponsorship towards the statues the money will instead be offered for the Long Life Puja for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Dedication: By offering these statues, on behalf of the FPMT organization, we are deeply requesting His Holiness to have a stable life for eons that are as numberless as drops of water in the oceans, and to continuously guide the FPMT organization and all students in this and all future lifetimes without separation.
DCI will include any dedications you wish to make at one of DCI’s pujas. There is a place on the pledge form to include your dedications.
