As promised, Rinpoche will make candle offerings for every person who sends their vegetarian commitments to him. He will also include them in his daily sadhana…and that’s no mean feat! Rinpoche’s sadhana runs into many hours each day, so devoted is he to keeping his vows and commitments so that they may be passed on to others in the future.

Imagine – a high reincarnate lama making direct offerings for YOU!

Here are some pictures from the first set of offerings…we hope you’ll join us in rejoicing for this group of people who have chosen to put the suffering of others before their own enjoyment!

Rinpoche in intense prayer for those who have committed to vegetarianism

At the ladrang, close students light the candles after they have been blessed by Rinpoche
