Join Us November 4 for 49th Day Special Prayers for His Holiness the 33rd Menri Trizin

HH Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Ligmincha Charlottesville 1997J JacksonThis Saturday, November 4, marks the 49th day since the passing into liberation of His Holiness the 33rd Menri Trizin Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche. You are invited to attend special prayers, led by Geshe Tenzin Yangton, November 4 from 4–5 p.m. in the gompa at Serenity Ridge Retreat Center.

These 49 days are an opportunity for us to make offerings and perform virtue in order to generate benefit for both ourselves and others.

The 49th day is a powerful time to connect with the presence of His Holiness, receive his blessings, renew commitments made to him and to remember the teachings and guidance that he offered.

It is also appropriate on this day to make the five offerings—butter lamps or tea lights, fresh flowers, incense, water bowls and torma (ritual offering cake).

For His Holiness 33rd Menri Trizin Rinpoche, the 49th day is the special day that he will give blessings to and connect with all those who have been meditating on him. You are welcome to join us on November 4th from 4–5 p.m., along with participants in the current Trul Khor retreat.
