Dear All,

 

We have annual Drubchens at the monasteries at Dechen Choekhor Ling in Mundgod and Thupten Shedrub Jangchub Ling in Bylakuppe.  The Annual Drubchen at Bylakuppe this year is Amitabha Buddha and will  begin from August 6 and last between 11-14 days depending on when the total count of 1 billion Buddha Amitabha mantra is accumulated.  The Drubchen will be presided by Khenpo Konchog Tashi. All the  Rinpoches, Khenpos, Monks, Nuns and Lay people will be chanting Buddha Amitabha mantras to accumulate the1 billion total during the Drubchen.

Ayang Rinpoche requests that all Buddhist practitioners and others associated with the Amitabha Foundation worldwide contribute to this practice and send their recitations of the Buddha Amitabha Mantra to accumulate the 1 billion total. Mantras may be accumulated and the totals sent in daily between August 6 to August 15. Send your mantra totals through the Amitabha Foundation in your own country,amitabhafoundationau@gmail.com

or directly to amitabhafoundation@yahoo.co.in or drikungcharitablesociety@yahoo.com.

The Buddha Amitabha mantra is OM AMI DEWA HRI.
