Chagdud Rinpoche’s Birthday

Join us for this celebration and tribute!

On Saturday, August 12, Odsal Ling will hold a special program to celebrate Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche's birthday.

On this special day, Lama Tsering will bestow the Red Tara empowerment and we will perform a Red Tara Tsog, khatag and butter lamp offerings and life release.

On this day Rinpoche would have turned 93, and his presence in this world has touched us deeply, transforming our lives and the lives of all those who connect with him. Through his boundless compassion, we can experience the power of his blessings, love, and aspirations to this day, and this is something to be celebrated!

We look forward to seeing you!

Please specify that it is for the Tsog on August 12.

Saving Lives is a practice in which we rescue animals that would otehrwise be used for sacrifice, slaughter, or any other activity that would take their lives, and release them back into their natural environment. The ceremonies include the recitation of prayers and mantras, and conclude with dedications.

Because it is considered supreme among longevity practices, it is commonly dedicated to beings who have faced obstacles to their longevity, such as risk of death or serious health problems. It can also be directed to beings whose lives have profound value to you.

We pray that the animals themselves, after escaping suffering, will find rebirth in the form of human beings with spiritual connection.

Offerings can be made from July 22 to until August 11 at 6pm.

The offering for Chagdud Rinpoche's birthday should be made exclusively by this form: forms.gle/gLvu4AKzvtuvYQgRA
