Drikung Kyobpa Choling: Sacred Prayers of Tibetan Lamas



Jewel Ornament teachings and prayers for all impacted from Nepal earthquake

Dear Friends, 

Lopon Wangdu will teach on Chapter 1 of the Jewel Ornament of Libertation: the Mahayana Family. We will also do prayers for those who died and all those impacted by the Nepal earthquake yesterday.  Drupon Samten Rinpoche will also join.

Drupon Samten requests us to do Chenrezig, Amtabha and Vajrasattava mantras and prayers for all those effected by the Nepal earthquake.

Chenrezig: OM MA-NI- PAD-ME HUNG

Vajrasattva: OM VAJ-RA SAT-TVA HUNG (short mantra)


Sincerely, DKC Staff
